Pakistan says it has intelligence of new Indian attack this month

Pakistan has "reliable intelligence" that India will attack again this month, foreign minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi said on Sunday.

MEA spokesperson Raveesh Kumar in the statement said, "India rejects the irresponsible and preposterous statement by the Foreign Minister of Pakistan with a clear objective of whipping up war hysteria in the region".

He said that India could stage a "Pulwama style" attack in Kashmir to use it as justification for its military adventure against Pakistan.

"Pakistan has reliable intelligence that India is hatching a new plan for aggression against Pakistan. As per our information, this could take place between April 16 and 20".

Ms Khan said it was obvious that such an important intelligence report would have first reached the prime minister, before Mr Qureshi.

She regretted that on the one hand, the foreign minister was saying that India could attack the country and, on the other, the government was releasing 350 Indian fishermen.

Mr. Qureshi said the planned aggression was aimed at "increasing diplomatic pressure against Pakistan". "Following the Pulwama incident, Modi government created a war hysteria and tried to damage peace of the region", he said, and added that Modi put peace of the region in jeopardy just for political gains.

His post also insisted Pakistan "cannot absolve itself of responsibility" for the militant auto bomb in Kashmir.

The 27 February air battle exacerbated New Delhi-Islamabad tensions, resulting in multiple cross-border exchanges of fire and several Pakistani drones allegedly violating Indian airspace.

US-based Foreign Policy magazine, citing USA officials, said all of Pakistan's F-16 combat jets had been accounted for, contradicting an Indian air force assessment that it had shot down one of the jets.

Pakistan said on April 6 that India had not shot down any of its planes.

In a separate development on Sunday, the Indian Deputy High Commissioner was summoned to the Pakistani Foreign Ministry, which warned India against "any misadventure". Although the attack was initially claimed by a Kashmiri youth, the Jaish-e-Mohammad later took responsibility for it.

He did not elaborate or say what information he has that suggests an Indian attack could soon be made but said Prime Minister Imran Khan had agreed to make the information public.
