The United Nations Military Observer Group is investigating the violations of ceasefire across the Line of Control (LoC) in Jammu and Kashmir, UN Secretary General’s spokesman Stéphane Dujarric said.

“We’ve seen the alleged ceasefire violations over the Line of Control, which are currently being investigated by the UN Military Observer Group in India and Pakistan (UNMOGIP), in the Pakistani-administered side of the LoC at Domel, Kotli, and Bhimber, where the security situation has, indeed, been tense,” Spokesman said, while answering a question on situation in Kashmir at regular briefing in New York.

“We continue to underline the need for the parties to find a peaceful solution through engagement and dialogue,” he added.

He said that when the UNMOGIP presents its report on the alleged incidents, “We will share.”

He ignored a reporter’s claim that India was pressuring the UNMOGIP not to make a report.

Pakistan on Monday summoned India’s Deputy High Commissioner J P Singh to condemn the alleged ceasefire violation by Indian security forces along the Line of Control (LoC), killing a civilian.

Pakistan Foreign Office in a statement said that India resorted to “unprovoked firing” on April 1 along the LoC in Chirikot sector that resulted in the killing of 18-year-old-girl.
