New Delhi: India on Tuesday said it was still in a sense of shock over ceasefire violations by Pakistan in Jammu and Kashmir and called for a return to peace and tranquility on the border.





"There is a sense of disappointment. We first need to get back to normal. There are other priorities," External Affairs Minister Salman Khurshid told reporters on the sidelines of a function here.

"There has to be peace and tranquility on the border. Ceasefire should not be violated. We are still in a sense of shock."

He was replying to questions on Pakistan not being ready to confer most favoured nation (MFN) status to India.

The Pakistan government Monday said it has no immediate plan to grant the MFN status to India.

Pakistani troops fired at Indian positions in Mendhar sector along the Line of Control (LoC) in Jammu and Kashmir's Poonch district late Monday night.

On Aug 11, Pakistanis fired at Indian positions in Digwar village of Poonch district and on Aug 6, specialist troops of the Pakistan Army killed five Indian soldiers in Chakan-Da-Bagh sector of the LoC in Poonch district.
