Sartaj Aziz writes letter to India, calls for probe into Rangers martyrdom

sartajISLAMABAD: Adviser to Prime Minister on National Security and Foreign Affairs, Sartaj Aziz has written a letter to the Indian External Affairs Minister, calling for an investigation of the martyrdom of Punjab Rangers personnel.

In his letter, Sartaj Aziz lodged protest on the killing of the two soldiers of Rangers in Zafarwal sector by unprovoked firing of the Indian Border Security Force.

The Advisor called for an immediate investigation into the incident and bringing the perpetrators to account.

The letter underlines that the regrettable ambush of the soldiers would undermine mechanisms established by the two countries to ensure peace and tranquility along the Line of Control (LoC) and the Working Boundary (WB).


The Adviser’s letter was handed over to the Indian High Commissioner by the Foreign Secretary.

On December 31, 2014, the Indian Border Security Force troops invited the personnel of the Punjab Rangers for a flag meeting, but greeted the unsuspecting soldiers with a volley of unprovoked fire, causing severe injuries to two soldiers.

The unabated Indian firing denied timely medical attention to the wounded soldiers, who succumbed to their injuries and embraced Shahadat.
