New Delhi, May 8: Pakistan has violated the ceasefire along the Line of Control in Jammu and Kashmir eight times this year, prompting India to lodge strong protests with the neighbouring country.

Minister of State for Home Mullappally Ramachandran today told the Lok Sabha that, during the current year, eight ceasefire violations have been reported along the LoC. "All incidents of violations are investigated and protests are lodged with Pakistan military authorities at an appropriate level through the established mechanism of hotlines, flag meetings and meetings between the Directors General of Military Operations of the two countries," he said.
