Cease fire violation across the Line of Control

January 08, 2013

In response to a question on violation of cease fire across the Line of Control, the Official Spokesperson stated:

"We deny that Indian troops had crossed the Line of Control in the Rampur sector, or had violated the cease fire.

The fact is that in the early hours of January 6, Pakistan troops in the sector commenced unprovoked firing on Indian troops. The roof of a civilian house in Churunda village was damaged in the Pak mortar fire. Indian troops undertook controlled retaliation in response.

India is strongly committed to the sanctity of the Line of Control in Jammu & Kashmir, which is the most important Confidence Building Measure between the two countries. The cease fire along the Line of Control, which has largely held since 2003, is an important element of this Confidence Building Measure. The Director Generals for Military Operations (DGsMO) of both sides have spoken to each other on the incident.

We call upon the Pakistani authorities to ensure that the sanctity of the Line of Control is upheld at all times, and to ensure that such incidents of unprovoked firing across the LoC do not recur.”
