Pakistan arrests suspected terrorists in Pulwama attack - Tamil News

On 26 February, in a pre-dawn air raid, Indian Air Force (IAF) fighter planes swooped down on alleged terrorist hideouts in Balakot, Pakistan, prompting the latter to retaliate with an air raid on India-administered Kashmir the very next day.

In an opinion piece, the NYT's editorial board emphasised that although the Indo-Pak tensions have diffused, for now, the two countries' "nuclear arsenals mean unthinkable consequences are always possible".

"This de-escalated a risky situation but more has to be done. We have to fight terrorism with the mantra of unity", PM Modi said. "Since our government came to power, we have decided that we will implement the NAP", Khan said while addressing a rally in Tharparkar district. "Pakistan is trying to divert attention from our concern over terrorism to their concern over a so-called threat from India".

The United States and India have separately called upon Pakistan to ensure its post-Pulwama crackdown on terrorists was "sustained, irreversible" and not "cosmetic" as in the past when apprehended individuals and shut down facilities returned to normal when the glare of global scrutiny shifted away.

Pakistan has taken some initial steps, like detaining 44 suspected militants, including the brother of JeM's leader Masood Azhar.

Pakistan said on Tuesday that it stopped an Indian submarine from entering its waters.

US State Department Deputy Spokesperson Robert Palladino's remarks came on Thursday after Islamabad launched earlier this week a crackdown on terrorist groups amid mounting pressure from the global community following the Kashmir suicide bombing that killed 40 CRPF troopers and was claimed by the Pakistan-based Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM).

Regarding the role of USA vis-à-vis Pakistan-India escalation, the daily wrote, "While the Clinton, Bush and Obama administrations aggressively worked to ensure that India-Pakistan confrontations in 1999, 2002 and 2008 did not spiral out of control, the Trump administration has done little but issue a few statements urging restraint".

The interior ministry said law enforcement agencies had placed 121 people in 'preventive detention as part of the crackdown that began this week.

"In an intelligence led operation in the early hours of today, India struck the biggest training camp of JeM in Balakot". He said Pakistan desires to sort out all issues with India which are hindering peace between the two countries.

Residents of the area reported hearing explosions in the night, but said only one person was injured, and that no infrastructure had been destroyed.
