Pakistan accuses India of breaking ceasefire in Kashmir

UNITED STATES, WASHINGTON (OBSERVATORY) — The Pakistani Foreign Ministry called the deputy head of the Indian Embassy in Islamabad Gaurav Ahluwalia and condemned the violation of the ceasefire by Indian forces on the control line in the disputed Kashmir region, the agency said.

As stated in the press release, we are talking about a shootout that occurred on August 27 in the border zone. According to the agency, as a result of it, two civilians were killed, including a child, four more were injured.

Pakistan reacted sharply when on August 5, New Delhi introduced direct federal government in Jammu and Kashmir. It was reported that the parties began to draw troops to the border. India and Pakistan have already fought three times over Kashmir. Now both countries possess nuclear weapons.

After the Muslim regions of British India formed a separate state of Pakistan, Jammu and Kashmir became the only Indian state where the majority are Muslims. The separatists are active there, of which the Pakistani authorities accuse New Delhi of support.
