Prime Minister AJK Raja Farooq Haider Khan has appealed UN Secretary General to take a serious notice of Indian unprovoked firing at Cease Fire line targeting civilians.

In a statement issued in Muzaffarabad on Sunday, he said over six lakh population reside close to CFL.

Indian troops are using cluster ammunition from across CFL which is a crime under Cluster Ammunition Convention and international laws.

He strongly condemned Indian firing at different sectors which claims martyrdom of 6 civilians and injuring 8 others.

Five martyrs belong to district Muzaffarabad and one to district Neelum.

He said Indian cowardice acts are increasing at Cease Fire line with each passing day and the increasing tension between two countries posed a serious threat to peace of the region. He said India is creating war like situation on CFL to divert the world attention from its massive human rights violations in the occupied valley.

Farooq Haider said Indian troops are using light, heavy weapons and sniper guns to target civilians.

He appealed international community to make India accountable for sheer violation of international laws and agreements.

He paid tributes to the valiant armed forces and people who are rendering matchless sacrifices for protesting mother land from Indian aggression and expressed sympathy with bereaved families.
