New Delhi:

A day after 40 CRPF personnel were killed in one of the deadliest terror attacks on its troops in Jammu and Kashmir, the Indian foreign secretary met around 25 Heads of Mission (HoMs) based in New Delhi from all P-5 countries, all South Asian countries and other important partners like Japan, Germany, Republic of Korea and others. “They were left in no doubt about the role played by Pakistan based and supported Jaish-e-Mohammed in the terror attack,” said sources.

“The foreign secretary also highlighted the role played by Pakistan in using terrorism as instrument of its state policy. The Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) will continue to take all steps to expose complicity of Pakistan in the Pulwama attack and demand immediate and verifiable action against Jaish-e-Mohammed and its leader Masood Azhar,” the sources said.

Representatives from Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Afghanistan, Nepal, South Korea, Sweden, Bhutan, Canada, Britain, Russia, Israel, Germany and others nations were present in the meeting.

At least 40 CRPF personnel were killed when a Jaish-e-Mohammed suicide bomber rammed an explosives-laden vehicle into the bus they were travelling in in one of the worst terror strikes in Jammu and Kashmir in recent years.

Finance Minister Arun Jaitley said all efforts will be made to ensure that perpetrators of the attack are brought to book. India on Friday withdrew the ‘Most-Favoured Nation’ status to Pakistan following the Pulwama terror attack.

In a media briefing after the meeting of the Cabinet Committee on Security (CCS), Finance Minister Arun Jaitley said all efforts will be made to ensure that perpetrators of the attack are brought to book.

He said those aiding and abating the perpetrators will have to pay a heavy price.
