India condemned the violation in Jammu and Kashmir in the strongest possible terms.

The act was described as a deliberate one aimed at targeting its nationals. India has also asked Pakistan to probe such incidents and said that its forces should refrain from such acts. These are heinous crimes against our nationals, India also said.

India has said that Pakistan violated the ceasefire 1,144 times between January and March. The highest number of violations (411) was recorded in March. India has said that the ceasefire violations are to provide cover fire to terrorists and help them infiltrate.
