This attack comes even as India plans to give a befitting reply to Pakistan and the countries across the world have condemned Pakistan for its attack in Uri sector that saw many soldiers killed.
According to media reports, Pakistani troops indulged in unprovoked firing—20 rounds of ammunition— from small arms on the Indian forward post in Uri sector. The firing from across the Line of Control took place between 1.10pm and 1. 30pm. There were no reports of any casualties.
On September 20, the government has decided to up the ante against Pakistan by approaching the international community and drumming up support for India.
While this was so, Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh on September 20 chaired a high-level review meeting at the MHA over the prevailing situation in the post-Uri terror attack. NSA Ajit Doval, Director of Intelligence Bureau, RAW Chief, Foreign Secretary SN Jaishankar, Minister of State for PMO Jitendra Singh and others attended.
Attacking Pakistan, Minister of State for Defence Subhash Bhamre has attacked Pakistan army and said that it is to be blamed for Uri attacks. He said, “Jaish-e-Mohammed couldn’t have operated without Pakistan army’s support.”
On September 19 too, Singh and Union Ministers Jaitley and Parrikar also discussed the security situation in the violence-hit state.
