India planning another attack on Pak: Shah Mehmood Qureshi

Pakistan's claim that India is planning another attack on its territory this month is "preposterous" and "irresponsible" and is meant to whip up war hysteria in the region, New Delhi today said.

On February 26, India said they struck a training camp of Pakistan-based Jaish-e-Mohammed, the group who claimed responsibility for the auto bomb, breaching the Kashmiri Line of Control (LOC) with an aerial assault.

Addressing a news conference in his hometown Multan, aired on state-run PTV News, Qureshi said: "We have reliable intelligence reports that India is planning another Pulwama-like incident in occupied Kashmir to pave way for increasing diplomatic pressure on Pakistan and justify a military action against Pakistan likely between April 16 and 20". "As per our information, this could take place between April 16 and 20".

She regretted that on the one hand, the foreign minister was saying that India could attack the country and, on the other, the government was releasing 350 Indian fishermen.

Mr Qureshi said Pakistan had raised its concerns with the UN Security Council. No attempt at creating an alibi for its complicity in such attacks will succeed, " the ministry said, adding that India "reserves the right to respond firmly and decisively to any cross border terrorist attack".

Foreign Office Spokesperson Dr Faisal, in a tweet, said the Indian DHC was also handed over a demarche in line with the foreign minister's press briefing earlier in the day.
