As the government mulled various options on India’s response to the cross-border terror attack on Sunday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday called a meeting of senior BJP leaders and Cabinet ministers at 6pm. After giving an assurance of going after the perpetrators of the deadly Uri attack, PM has given the green signal to diplomatically isolate Pakistan at every international grouping. The Uri incident was one of the deadliest attacks on Indian Army in recent years, as heavily-armed terrorists stormed a battalion headquarters of the force killing 18 jawans and injuring over 20. Media reports quoting government sources said that the Prime Minister has given a go ahead to tackle insurgency head on. Pakistan has rejected India’s claims of involvement in the terror attack, stating that the latter has a traditional tendency to point fingers at the former whenever a terror attack takes place on Indian soil.
Meanwhile, India Today reported that there was unusual movement along the India-Pakistan border in Rajasthan. Pakistan’s Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) today ordered the closure of air space over Northern areas. Officials said that Pakistani warplanes might be in the air to keep vigil due to Indo-Pak tensions after the Uri attack. In Jammu and Kashmir, normal life continued to remain disturbed in for the 75th consecutive day due to restrictions and separatist sponsored strike.
