Consequent to unprovoked and coordinated ceasefire violations onto Indian civilians along the Line of Control, Pak DGMO was informed of action by Pakistani troops wherein they had deliberately targeted civilian villages and then fired at school children while they were being evacuated.

Pakistani DGMO was exhorted to exercise strict control on his troops and instruct them to refrain from any nefarious activities.
