Pakistan claims India preparing for another attack

India's Foreign Ministry spokesman Raveesh Kumar, in a statement posted on Twitter, dismissed as "irresponsible and preposterous" the comments made by Qureshi.

The Pakistan government has reportedly said they have credible intelligence that suggests India is planning another attack on Pakistan, sometime between April 16 and 20.

Pakistan's Foreign Minister Shahe Mehmood Qureshi had earlier said that India is preparing for another attack against Pakistan, claiming that Islamabad has received credible information in this regard.

"There are chances of another aggression against Pakistan and according to our information this action can take place between April 16 and 20", Mr Qureshi told reporters.

Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan has denied his country had any role in the attack.

Meanwhile, India on Sunday rejected as "irresponsible and preposterous" the Pakistan foreign minister's claims.

Addressing a press conference here, the minister said India is planning an aggressive move against Pakistan. He further said: "The objective behind this attack in the veil of the Kashmir aggression could be to pressurise Pakistan and justify their investigation".

Tensions flared up between India and Pakistan after a suicide bomber of Pakistan-based Jaish-e-Muhammed (JeM) killed 40 CRPF personnel in Kashmir's Pulwama district on February 14. The next day, Pakistani fighter jets had violated Indian airspace and targeted Indian military installations.

The spokesperson Dr Mohammad Faisal, on March 29, had invited Indian media to Pakistan for coverage of the meeting between Islamabad and New Delhi for Kartarpur Corridor.

"Pakistan has apprised all five permanent member states of the United Nations Security Council [China, France, Russia, United Kingdom, and United States] of India's attempts to disrupt peace", Qureshi was quoted by the Foreign Office. Another attack on Pakistan will most certainly help the fortunes of the Bharatiya Janata Party, which has nearly exclusively been campaigning on the plank of "national security" and "nationalism".

Because relations are so rocky, prisoners who have completed jail terms, many of them fishermen convicted of straying into each other's territory, often languish in prison for months, if not years, afterwards.
