Will 'soon' respond to Indian dossier on JeM: Pak FO


Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday said there is panic among the terror groups on the account of decisive action taken by India across the border.

Pakistan began a crackdown against terror groups this week amid growing global pressure in the wake of the terror attack in Jammu and Kashmir's Pulwama in which 40 CRPF soldiers were killed.

It is unfortunate that Pakistan still continues to deny JeM's own claim of carrying out the Pulwama attack in which 40 CRPF personnel were killed, he said.

Pakistan-based militant group Jaish-e-Muhammed took responsibility for the attack. It noted that Islamabad and New Delhi were "long among the world's most antagonistic neighbors" and that it was fortunate they found "the good sense to de-escalate".

Since the Pulwama terror attack the global community has stood by India, Kumar said.

Pakistan faces growing worldwide pressure to rein in Islamist groups that carry out attacks in neighbouring India.

Both countries carried out aerial bombing missions last week and even fought a brief dogfight over Kashmir before tensions cooled.

This starts with cracking down on the JeM and other terrorist groups such as Lashkar-e-Taiba which was responsible for the 2008 Mumbai attack, Bera said, adding that unfortunately, Pakistan's behaviour towards these terrorist groups have been contradictory and self-defeating.

Those arrested so far include JeM head Masood Azhar's brother Abdul Rauf Asghar and son Hammad Azhar.

"As was stated during the Joint Press Conference on February 28, the Indian navy remains deployed as necessary to protect National Maritime Interests", a statement issued by Indian navy said. Is Pakistan a fool to say that it was beaten up.

Regarding the role of United States vis-à-vis Pakistan-India escalation, the daily wrote, "While the Clinton, Bush and Obama administrations aggressively worked to ensure that India-Pakistan confrontations in 1999, 2002 and 2008 did not spiral out of control, the Trump administration has done little but issue a few statements urging restraint".

"Law enforcement agencies have taken 121 people under preventive detention as of today", the interior ministry said in a statement. "Identify these people, they are not anxious about the country, but are scared of going behind the bars and that is why they want to capture power at the Centre", Modi said at a public meeting.
