    The Foreign Office (FO) said that Indian troops on Thursday opened unprovoked fire across the Line of Control in Azad Jammu and Kashmir, killing an elderly woman.

    The incident, which the FO said was latest in a series of ceasefire violations by India, took place in the Kot Kotera sector.

    FO Spokesperson Dr Muhammad Faisal on Friday said that Pakistan had summoned the acting Indian deputy high commissioner to lodge a protest over the killing of 65-year-old Hussain Bibi.

    The FO spokesperson stated that so far in 2018, Indian forces have committed more than 70 ceasefire violations along the LoC and the Working Boundary, resulting in Hussain Bibi's death and wounding five others.
