Pak calls in Indian High Commissioner, serves demarche

Pakistan’s Foreign Office on Friday called in Indian High Commissioner Sharat Sabharwal to lodge a protest over the death of a Pakistani soldier in an incident of firing along the Line of Control, which has witnessed a string of clashes since the weekend.

Officials in the Foreign Office told PTI that Sabharwal was served a demarche by Foreign Secretary Jalil Abbas Jilani over Thursday’s incident in Battal sector of the LoC, which the Pakistan Army said had resulted in the death of a soldier.

There have been three violations of the nine-year-old ceasefire along the LoC in the past five days.
