NEW DELHI: Pakistan High Commission Staff Officer Akhtar Mehmood has been arrested by Indian police.
Meanwhile Pakistan High Commissioner Abdul Basit has been summoned in the foreign office.
Kashmiris at either side of the Line of Control (LoC) and rest of the world are observing black day today against Indian occupation of Jammu & Kashmir state since October 27, 1947.
India had landed its armed military troops in Srinagar on this day 69 years ago against the wishes of the people of Jammu & Kashmir.
Black flags will be hoisted atop the buildings at both sides of the LoC. People in Azad Jammu Kashmir and the Indian occupied Jammu Kashmir, besides wearing black bands on their arms, would also take out rallies to protest against India’s continued forcible occupation of Jammu & Kashmir state.
Pakistan on Wednesday summoned Indian Deputy High Commissioner JP Singh to protest repeated ceasefire violations at the Working Boundary and Line of Control (LoC).
The Foreign Office handed a protest letter to the Indian envoy over the ceasefire violations.
In the latest incident, two civilians embraced martyrdom while eight villagers were injured on Wednesday due to Indian unprovoked firing at Chaprar sector on Working Boundary, the ISPR said.
Since the Uri attack in occupied Kashmir, Indian forces have consistently violated the ceasefire agreement with Pakistan. On September 29, India claimed to have conducted surgical strikes in Azad Kashmir, saying that several terrorists were killed in the military action conducted inside Pakistani territory.
The claims were not only rebuffed by Pakistan and the international media, but they also prompted demands from some Indian political leaders for New Delhi to substantiate it with evidence.
