Indian Home Ministry on Friday asked all metro cities to remain vigilant for the next 30 days. Following the tensions between India and Pakistan, Indian army had conducted a surgical strike across the LoC in Pakistan, eliminating nearly 40 terrorists. Earlier today a cabinet meeting headed by Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif was held in Islamabad. It is reported that the cabinet meeting has been called to discuss the next course of action following the strike by India, that the neighbour had termed as “cross-border firing”. Meanwhile yesterday, Pakistani Airforce had said that it was prepared for any and all eventualities. In India, it was reported that evacuation process was carried out in the villages near the border region, considering the possibility of armed conflicts. Schools near the border in Punjab have been shut down until further notice.

Earlier yesterday, Maleeha Lohi, Pakistan’s ambassador to the UN had said that India was conducting such strikes to divert attention from its domestic problem of Kashmir. While Lohi had said that an Indian soldier wax captured trying to cross the border, the Indian army has completely denied any casualties of any kind. She had also urged the international community to caution restraint to India.

Earlier today, it was reported the Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi would review the LoC situation at the international border in Pakistan at a Cabinet Committee. India had carried out surgical strikes on seven terror launch pads across the LoC on the intervening night of September 28 and 29, with the Army saying it had inflicted “significant casualties” on terrorists preparing to infiltrate from PoK, days after Modi warned Uri attack would not go unpunished. Pakistan had yesterday, summoned Indian High Commissioner Gautam Bambawale over “unprovoked firing” by India in which two Pakistani soldiers were killed.
