Amid unprovoked ceasefire violations by Pakistani forces along the Line of Control, India on Friday registered its strong protest saying the activities are in contravention to the 2003 Ceasefire Understanding between the two nations.

“We have registered our strong protest at the continued unprovoked ceasefire violations by Pakistan forces along the Line of Control and the International Boundary which are in contravention to the 2003 Ceasefire Understanding,” sources in the government establishment said.

Till June this year, 14 Indians were killed and 88 injured in more than 2,432 unprovoked ceasefire violations carried out by Pakistan forces.

India has also conveyed its concerns regarding cross border infiltration of terrorists.

'We have also conveyed our strong concerns at the continued support being extended by the Pakistan forces for cross border infiltration of terrorists, including through covering fire,' the sources said.

Despite these concerns having been shared, including through the channel of Director Generals Military Operations, the Pakistan forces have not ceased such activities, they said.
