India asks Pakistan for concrete crackdown on terror groups

India asks Pakistan for concrete crackdown on terror groups

India insists that the strike killed at least 250 terrorists, while Pakistan claims that Indian jets simply dropped their payloads on a hilltop without hurting anyone.

One such attack in Indian-controlled Kashmir on February 14, claimed by the Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) Pakistan-based group, killed 40 Indian paramilitary police and led to clashes between the nuclear-armed rivals as India retaliated.

India on Saturday demanded that Pakistan take concrete steps against terrorists operating from its territory, while at the same time returning its top diplomat to Islamabad amid an easing of tensions between the nuclear rivals. As we have already said, there are eye-witness accounts and electronic evidence that Pakistan deployed F-16 aircraft and that one F-16 was shot down by Wing Commander Abhinandan.

The developments followed a suicide attack by JeM on a security convoy in Kashmir that claimed the lives of 40 Indian servicemen on 14 February.

He said a recent United Nations statement also called for "perpetrators, organizers, financiers and sponsors of terrorism to be held accountable and brought to justice".

He accused Pakistan of failing to take any credible action against Jaish-e-Mohammed and other terrorist organizations, which he said continued to operate with impunity from Pakistan.

"This government will not allow Pakistan's land to be used for any kind of outside terrorism", Khan said today while addressing a public rally in southern Pakistan.

Speaking on the sidelines of the annual National People's Congress legislative meetings, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi declared on Friday that India and Pakistan should "meet each other halfway" to defuse the crisis, portraying Beijing's role as a balancing act between its nuclear-armed neighbors, the South China Morning Post (SCMP) reports.

As many as 22 terrorist training camps, including nine of Jaish-e-Mohammed are active in Pakistan, but no action is being taken against them, a senior Indian official said in Washington on Thursday, warning that New Delhi will carry out operation similar to that of the Balakot airstrike if there is an act of terrorism coming from across the border.

"India hasn't shared yet any actionable information and proof against anybody", Chaudhry said. Pakistan said the strike only damaged three trees in a forest.

Meanwhile Pakistani officials maintain the crackdown is part of a long-planned drive and not a response to Indian anger. India said it lost only one aircraft. "Pakistan has further increased diplomatic efforts and we have made a decision to send back the Pakistani high commissioner to New Delhi (Sohail Mahmood)", he added.

Since then, the two sides have exercised restraint amid calls from the worldwide community to avoid war.
