Pakistan has repeatedly condemned ceasefire violations by Indian forces due to which, several civilians lose their lives every day.

Veeri said the process of reconciliation initiated by former Prime Minister Atal Behari Vaypayee in 2003 needed to be taken forward.

A civilian was martyred and two children were injured after Indian security forces opened unprovoked fire across the Line of Control (LoC), the Inter-Services Public Relations said on Sunday.

They were identified as Captain Kapil Kundu, 23, from Haryana, 43-year-old Havildar Roshan Lal from Jammu and Kashmir, Rifleman Ram Avtar, 28, from Madhya Pradesh, and 23-year-old Rifleman Shubam Singh from Jammu and Kashmir.

"My father talked to me [over phone] on Sunday morning and asked both of us to study seriously for the final exams", said Abhinandan, a Class 10 student at the Army School in Samba. Indian officials say the opposing side used "small arms, automatics, mortars and missiles" to kill the Indian soldiers. He said alternative arrangements for boarding and lodging have also been put in place for the affected population. Pakistani forces had violated ceasefire 860 times in 2017.

"And one of the shells landed near the officer and his men, leading to the casualties". However, the violation of the truce has still been continuing.
