United Nations chief urges India, Pakistan 'mutual engagement'

We will have comment on it at an appropriate time says US president

"We will divert water from Eastern rivers and supply it to our people in Jammu and Kashmir and Punjab", the minister for water resources, river development and Ganga rejuvenation wrote on the microblogging site.

"We will stop every drop of water going from India to Pakistan, water belonging to India could not be allowed into Pakistan".

The Prime Minister directed both the Ministry of Interior and security institutions to immediately accelerate actions on ground, the report said.

"The incident was conceived, planned and executed indigenously", said a statement issued following a meeting of Pakistan's National Security Committee, which added Pakistan was "not involved in any way, means or form".

Pakistan on Thursday chose to respond "decisively" and "comprehensively" to any aggression or misadventure by India and in this connection Prime Minister Imran Khan has empowered armed forces to act accordingly.

The move underscored a risky escalation in tensions between the two nuclear-armed rival nations in the wake of last week's deadly auto bombing of an Indian paramilitary convoy in the disputed Kashmir region. The ambassador's statement came hours after Pakistani prime minister Imran Khan blamed India of levelling allegations against his country without any evidence.

An armed rebellion erupted in Kashmir in 1989, demanding independence or a union with Pakistan. Retribution for the attack on the Central Reserve Police Force convoy is thus being sought in different ways - targeting of people of Kashmiri origin in other parts of India and calling for a ban on Kashmiri products and craftspeople and stopping Amarnath Yatras.

Pakistan-based Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) claimed responsibility for the attack.

He said they should also note that where such a provocation will take the two countries and the region.

Terming militancy and extremism the top-most enemies of the country Prime Minister Imran Khan said that they would not let these elements prevail and hurt the interests of the state of Pakistan. "India's democracy is a model for the world which Pakistan would never understand". A third Indian official said details relating to the militant group's operations were provided to the FATF.

In a first formal reaction to the attack, Prime Minister Imran on Tuesday offered India all possible assistance in investigating the Pulwama incident.
