"The fact that Pakistan has now refused access to journalists from visiting the site means that they have plenty to hide", Indian foreign ministry spokesman Raveesh Kumar told reporters.

Meanwhile, Pakistan's High Commissioner to India, Sohail Mahmood, is also expected to reach New Delhi on Saturday.

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.

"Tensions between India and Pakistan appear to be de-escalating and this is a positive development", Qureshi said.

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 said Pakistan should take concrete steps "against terrorists and terror infrastructure" on its territory.

India said Saturday (March 9) that its army is on a "strict vigil" for new attacks from Pakistan and renewed warnings to its neighbour to take concrete action against militant groups.

Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan's government began a crackdown against Islamist militant organisations.

He said these decisions were taken at a meeting of the general council on FATF, led by Pakistan's Finance Secretary Arif Ahmed Khan, as part of a series of meetings to comply with the FATF obligations.

Islamabad responded by shooting down two Indian warplanes and capturing a pilot, who was later returned to India as a peace gesture.

Only one aircraft was lost by India during Pakistan's unsuccessful attempt at targeting Indian military installations, he said.
