A special hotline contact was established on Wednesday morning between the directors general Military Operations of Pakistan and Indian armies to discuss the situation arising due to recent Indian allegations of LoC ceasefire violation.
The Pakistani DGMO strongly and categorically rejected Indian allegation of LoC violation by Pakistani troops and killing of five Indian soldiers in Poonch Sector on night between August 5th and 6th.
The Pakistan Army also lodged a strong protest during special hotline contact for LoC violation by Indian troops in Pandu Sector on Wednesday, in which two Pakistani soldiers were seriously injured.
It was reiterated by the DGMO that Pakistan army abided by the ceasefire agreement existing between the two countries.
Pakistan said that its forces committed no violation of the said sector on the night between August 5 and 6 nor it had killed Indian troops.
The Foreign Office has already rejected Indian allegations and has lodged strong protest against Indian troop’s violation of LoC.
On the other hand Sartaj Aziz, adviser to prime minister on national security and foreign affairs, also protested over intrusion into Pakistan airspace by an Indian drone.
Defence observers said violation of LoC by Indian troops could undermine the efforts aimed at normalising the relations between Pakistan and India and could leave negative impact on the prospective meeting between the prime ministers of Pakistan and Indian on the sidelines of UN General Assembly session during the third week of September in New York.
