Pakistan's High Commissioner to India returns to his post in New Delhi

Pakistan's big statement: Detained 121 terrorists, took control of 182 madrasas

China Claims Credit for Helping Defuse India-Pakistan Tensions

On Monday, Pakistan announced a new crackdown against militants and by Thursday, 182 religious schools run by banned groups had been seized, and more than 120 people detained.

The statement also said Pakistan should explain why it continues to deny that its F-16 aircraft has been shot down when there are eye-witness accounts and electronic evidence, and if, as Pakistan claims, a second Indian aircraft was shot down, why it has not shown the fuselage or produced the pilot of that aircraft.

The developments followed a suicide attack by JeM on a security convoy in Kashmir that claimed the lives of 40 Indian servicemen on 14 February.

One such attack in Indian-controlled Kashmir on February 14, claimed by the Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) Pakistan-based group, killed 40 Indian paramilitary police and led to clashes between the nuclear-armed rivals as India retaliated.

Kumar said that a reported Pakistani crackdown earlier in the week on seminaries, mosques and hospitals belonging to outlawed groups and the arrests of dozens of people was not enough, and that Pakistan should take concrete steps "against terrorists and terror infrastructure" on its territory.

After the Pulwama attack, the Indian Air Force carried out a counter-terror operation, hitting what it said was a JeM training camp in Balakot, deep inside Pakistan on February 26.

"The widespread presence of terrorist camps in Pakistan is a public knowledge within and outside Pakistan", he said.

An influential US Congressman has warned that Pakistan will continue to slide into global isolation if it does not take actions against terrorist groups operating from its soil.

The dossier was handed over to Pakistan after Prime Minister Imran Khan in his address to the nation had offered Indian government to hold dialogue. "Prime Minister Imran Khan should use this opportunity to reset his country's relationship with the world and chart a new course for Pakistan", he said.

"India hasn't shared yet any actionable information and proof against anybody", Chaudhry said.

Pakistani officials say this crackdown is part of a long-planned drive and not a response to Indian anger.

Asserting that India has the right to self-defence, the official told reporters that New Delhi by successfully carrying out strikes inside Pakistan "has been able to call the Pakistani bluff" on the nuclear front.

Islamabad responded by shooting down two Indian warplanes and capturing a pilot, who was later returned to India as a peace gesture.

"Only one aircraft was lost by us".
