India rejects Pakistan's allegation of planning attack

Last week, the Indian government faced embarrassment when a Foreign Policy magazine report citing senior United States defence officials stated that none of Pakistan's F-16 jets had been shot down by the Indian Air Force ─ contrary to India's claims ─ on Fen 27, when tensions between both countries had spiked in the aftermath of the Pulwama attack.

Governor said Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi was creating war hysteria to win public emotions for success in the upcoming general elections in India, adding that Pakistan would not let Modi play havoc with the regional peace. The Indo-Pak tensions escalated in recent months after a terror attack in Pulwama by Pakistan-based Jaish-e-Muhammed terror group that killed 40 CRPF soldiers on February 14 and a subsequent aerial strike by India on a JeM training camp in Balakot on February 26.

"Pakistan has reliable intelligence that India is hatching a new plan for aggression against Pakistan".

He said on Sunday that an attack could take place between April 16 and 20, adding that Pakistan had told the five permanent members of the U.N. Security Council of its concerns.

Ms Khan said it was obvious that such an important intelligence report would have first reached the prime minister, before Mr Qureshi.

India's ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) - which Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan has previously blamed for igniting "hysteria" - is now running for reelection in India.

"The objective of such a sinister plan is to put diplomatic pressure on Pakistan", he added.

The two states came to a dramatic confrontation earlier this year after India retaliated to a auto bomb that killed 44 paramilitary troops on February 14.

The foreign minister said India can stage another Pulwama-type incident to justify its misadventure against Pakistan.

India struck the biggest training camp of the terror group, Jaish-e-Muhammed, deep inside Pakistan on February 26 almost two weeks after the Pulwama terror attack in which 40 CRPF personnel were killed.

Shah Mahmood Qureshi, Federal Minister for Foreign Affairs in Pakistan's government, made the announcement today.

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.

The 100 people set free on Sunday are mostly fishermen who strayed into Pakistani waters.
