SRINAGAR: A day after the Pulwama attack in which at least 49 Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) soldiers were killed, India on Friday summoned Pakistan’s envoy and lodged a strong protest.
Foreign Secretary Vijay Gokhale summoned Pakistan’s High Commissioner Sohail Mahmood and sources say a very strong demarche or diplomatic protest was lodged.
Government sources say India conveyed that Pakistan must take immediate and verifiable action against the Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) and that it must immediately stop any groups or individuals associated with terrorism operating from its territories.
India’s envoy to Islamabad has been asked to come to Delhi for consultations on the next steps.
