India rejects Pakistan claims of attack

In a strongly worded statement, External Affairs Ministry Spokesperson Raveesh Kumar said the comments by the Pakistani foreign minister is aimed at whipping up war hysteria in the region. "According to our information, the action could be taken between 16-20 April", Qureshi said, adding that preparations were being made for the attack against Pakistan.

The foreign minister, while addressing a press conference in Multan, announced that the government has "reliable intelligence that India is devising a new plan".

Speaking to reports in Islamabad, Qureshi said the credible information received by Islamabad shows that India is mulling to carry out the attack between 16th and 20th of April.

Qureshi said Pakistan had told the five permanent members of the UN Security Council about the possibility of the attack.

On February 26, Indian warplanes violated Pakistani airspace and allegedly struck what New Delhi claimed was a JeM training camp, a claim rejected by Pakistan and never proved by India.

The BJP government further added, "India reserves the right to respond firmly and decisively to any cross border terrorist attack".

US-based Foreign Policy magazine, citing USA officials, said all of Pakistan's F-16 combat jets had been accounted for, contradicting an Indian air force assessment that it had shot down one of the jets.

India also said they shot down a Pakistan F-16 fighter jet which crossed the LOC during the February 27 escalation.

India had launched air strikes on Pakistan in February in retaliation for the Pulwama attack that killed 40 CRPF men. Two Indian jets were shot down, one pilot was captured but later released.

The spokesperson Dr Mohammad Faisal, on March 29, had invited Indian media to Pakistan for coverage of the meeting between Islamabad and New Delhi for Kartarpur Corridor.

"We have reliable intelligence that India is planning a new attack on Pakistan".

Pakistan detained dozens of suspected militants after the Kashmir attack, including relatives of Masood Azhar, the founder of the group that claimed the attack.

Because relations are so rocky, prisoners who have completed jail terms, many of them fishermen convicted of straying into each other's territory, often languish in prison for months, if not years, afterwards.
