Pakistan's Deputy High Commissioner, Syed Haider Shah, was summoned on Tuesday (03) by Join Secretary in the Ministry of External Affairs, Deepak Mittal, over the continuous ceasefire violations by Pakistani forces.

A strong demarche was issued to the Pakistani diplomat for the unprovoked firing from across the border on October 2, causing death of three children.

A statement issued by the Ministry of External Affairs said that the message was "conveyed" to the diplomat that "such deliberate targeting of civilians was not acceptable and was against humanitarian norms and practices."
