New Delhi, Sep 15 (UNI) There have been altogether more than 2050 'unprovoked ceasefire violations' by Pakistan in the year 2019 and these have led to deaths of 21 Indians, the Ministry of External Affairs said here on Sunday.

"We have highlighted our concerns at unprovoked ceasefire violations by Pakistan forces, including in support of cross border terrorist infiltration and targeting of Indian civilians and border posts by them," an official spokesperson said here.

The spokesman maintained that in this year alone there have been 2050 such unprovoked ceasefire violations in which 21 Indians have been killed.

"We have repeatedly called upon Pakistan to ask its forces to adhere to 2003 ceasefire understanding and maintain peace and tranquility along the LoC and international border," he said.

The spokesman said Indian forces exercise "maximum restraint" and respond to unprovoked violations and attempts at cross border terrorist infiltration.

The reactions from Indian MEA spokesman comes a day after Pakistan had summoned India's deputy High Commissioner Gaurav Ahluwalia to register protest of alleged ceasefire violation by Indian troops in Nikia and Jandrot sectors.
