India conveys strong concern to Pakistan on Nagrota terror attack

India conveys strong concern to Pakistan on Nagrota terror attack

Saturday 21st November 2020

The Pakistan Charge d'Affaires (Cd'A) was summoned by the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) and a strong protest was lodged at the attempted terror attack in Nagrota, Jammu, and Kashmir on Thursday.

According to an MEA press release, India demanded that Pakistan desists from its policy of supporting terrorists and terror groups operating from its territory and dismantle the terror infrastructure operated by terrorist outfits to launch attacks in other countries.

India also reiterated its long-standing demand that Pakistan fulfills its international obligations and bilateral commitments to not allow any territory under its control to be used for terrorism against India in any manner.

The Government of India had also expressed its serious concerns at continued terror attacks by Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) against India.

"The Government of India is firmly and resolutely committed to taking all necessary measures to safeguard its national security in the fight against terrorism," said MEA.

MEA also said that the huge cache of arms, ammunition, and explosive material indicates detailed planning for a major attack to destabilize the peace and security in the UT of Jammu and Kashmir, in particular, to derail the ongoing democratic exercise of conduct of local District Development Council elections.

This comes after an encounter took place between terrorists and security forces in the early hours of Thursday near Ban Toll Plaza in the Nagrota area of Jammu district, where four terrorists were neutralized by the security forces, while one police constable sustained injuries during the operation.

Initial reports indicate the attackers to be members of Pakistan-based JeM, a terrorist organization proscribed by the United Nations and several countries.

Jen has been part of several attacks in India in the past, including the Pulwama attack in February 2019. 

Earlier this week, a major terror attack was thwarted with the killing of four JeM terrorists. In an encounter with security forces that lasted for three hours, four terrorists likely to be from the United Nations-designated terror group Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) were eliminated. 

The terrorists were trapped at a toll plaza on Jammu--Srinagar national highway in the Nagrota area of Union territory of Jammu and Kashmir.

Pakistan's involvement in the incident has emerged, especially in the supply of phones. The phones recovered from the slain terrorists have been manufactured by a Pakistani company. 

On Thursday Indian Prime Minister held a review meeting attended by Home minister Amit Shah, NSA Ajit Doval, foreign secretary Harsh Shringla. The terrorists were planning a major attack ahead of the 26/11 attack anniversary.
