Indian Army requests Pakistan to halt artillery firing on LoC


According to sources, India requested Pakistan to stop the artillery firing at Line of Control.

Indian Army requested that Pakistan should cease the artillery firing on LoC as they faced huge losses. However, it is unclear if Pakistan has accepted the request but there is chance that both countries may be discussing different options to de-escalate the tension. On the other side, it is an indication that the channel of communications that were suspended during the military standoff in February may have been restored.

According to sources, 34 Indian soldiers were killed on February 28 due to artillery firing on LoC. At a recent news briefing, DG ISPR Major General Asif Ghafoor also revealed that Pakistan’s response had compelled the Indian Army to change their positions on February 28.

A few days back, Indian High Commissioner Ajay Bisaria held an important meeting with Foreign Secretary Dr Sohail Mehmood at the Foreign Office. Details of that meeting were not shared with the media but the Indian request seeking end to the artillery use was believed to be one of the talking points.
