India says Pakistan hiding information by blocking access to bombing site

Money Sharma—AFP

Indian Ministry of External Affairs spokesperson Raveesh Kumar on Saturday said in a news briefing that Indian High Commissioner to Pakistan Ajay Bisaria will return to Islamabad today.

Tensions have been high between the two neighbours following the Pulwama attack for which Pakistan-based terror outfit Jaish-e-Mohammed claimed responsibility.

"The United States' Congress stands ready to support Pakistan should Prime Minister (Imran) Khan begin cracking down on terrorist groups in earnest".

On March 5, the Foreign Office (FO) said they had informed the Indian envoy that Pakistan's High Commissioner to India Sohail Mahmood would be returning to New Delhi after completing consultations in Islamabad. The prime minister said March 8, 2019 that no militant group would be allowed to operate on Pakistani soil and carry out attacks overseas.

The MEA reminded Islamabad of the then Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf's 2004 statement when he had made a solemn public commitment that they would not allow any territory under their control to be used for terrorist activity in any manner. "Repeated requests by us and the worldwide community for Pakistan to take action against such groups have been met with denial", Kumar said.

"These actions are in accordance with UN Security Council Resolution 1267". "In an interview to CNN on February 28, the Foreign Minister of Pakistan said, and I quote "Well, he is (Masood Azhar) in Pakistan according to my information" unquote", he said. "If Imran Khan does not take these steps, I'm afraid Pakistan will continue to slide into global isolation, which will only serve to increase economic hardship on the Pakistani people", the Indian-American Congressman said.

India said on Saturday Pakistan had "plenty to hide" by preventing journalists from accessing the site of an air strike by Indian fighter jets inside Pakistan.

His article came days after Pakistan, under vast global pressure after the Pulwama terror attack and India's air strikes against a JeM terrorist camp in Balakot in Pakistan's Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province on February 26, started taking actions against some of the terrorist outfits and their leaders over the past few days.

Pakistan claimed it downed two Indian jets, and rejected IAF's assertion that a F-16 aircraft was shot down by it during the dogfight.
