A Pakistani farmer was martyred in Indian troops firing across Working Boundary in Shakkargarh, reported 24NewsHD TV channel on Tuesday.

Sixty-seven-year-old labourer Abdul Hameed was seriously injured by Indian troops firing while working in the field. His family looked for him the whole night.

In the morning, the Indian troops took his dead body along with them.

A day earlier, Pakistan had yet again summoned a senior Indian diplomat to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to register the strong protest over ceasefire violations by the Indian occupation forces along the Line of Control (LoC) on November 22, resulting in serious injuries to 11 innocent civilians.

Due to indiscriminate and unprovoked firing by the Indian occupation forces in Khuiratta Sector of the LoC, 55-year-old Muhammad Haneef s/o Muhammad Hussain, 5-year-old Shangur d/o Muhammad Irfan, 5-year-old Summan d/o Muhammad Ajaib, 20-year-old Aruj d/o Muhammad Adnan, 35-year-old Zabina w/o Muhammad Ajaib, 65-year-old Sarwar Jan w/o Muhammad Hussain, 35-year-old SajidaKausar w/o Muhammad Irfan, 10-year-old Eraj d/o Sadiq, 50-year-old Khursheed Begum w/o Sub Mehmood Shaheed, 7-year-old Hurrain Irfan d/o Muhammad Irfan and 9-year-old Mubeen s/o Abdul Hameed, residents of Jijot Bahadar village, sustained serious injuries.

The Indian occupation forces along the LoC and the Working Boundary (WB) have been continuously targeting civilian populated areas with artillery fire, heavy-calibre mortars and automatic weapons.

This year, India has committed more than 2820 ceasefire violations to date, resulting in 26 shahadats and serious injuries to 245 innocent civilians.
