The foreign secretary deplored the firing by Indian security forces on peaceful protesters, resulting in killings of more than 30 innocent people and injuries to more than 300, around 50 critically. He highlighted that such brutal use of force was not acceptable under any circumstance.

Aizaz Chaudhry called for fair and transparent inquiry against individuals responsible for these killings.
