Addressing the press briefing, Dr Faisal said he hopes India will answer the questions soon.

Dr Faisal said the Federal Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi had credible intelligence of India devising new plan to attack Pakistan between April 16 and 20. He said, “India will receive the same response as February 27 if it challenges our resolve.”

On February 27, Pakistan Air Force (PAF) shot down two Indian military aircrafts after they trespassed the Line of Control (LOC) and captured an Indian pilot who was subsequently released as a sign of peace. On February 26, Pakistan befittingly responded to LOC violation by two Indian aircrafts.

India presumably attacked in response to February 14 Pulwama suicide bombing which the country blamed on Pakistan without showing any proof whatsoever.

The Foreign Office of Pakistan said the Indian dossier on the Pulwama attack did not contain any evidence regarding the involvement of Pakistan or Jaish-e-Muhammad (JeM) chief Masood Azhar.

Foreign Office spokesperson Dr Mohammad Faisal, in his weekly press briefing on March 28, said a preliminary probe by Pakistan into the Pulwama suicide bombing after receiving the Indian dossier revealed no links of any Pakistani to the attack.

The FO further apprised that a 10-member team of the Federal Investigation Agency started probe into the Pulwama incident, in which more than 40 Indian paramilitary soldiers were killed, soon after Pakistan received the Indian dossier.

According to the preliminary probe, no Pakistani had any links to the attack, the spokesperson said. Pakistan has asked India for further details and evidences relating to the attack, he added.

Dr Faisal said the Indian dossier named more than 90 people. But there was no evidence linking JeM chief Masood Azhar or Pakistan to the attack.

According to a source, ‘The information was reportedly gleaned from open sources such as blogs, websites, Facebook and Twitter.’
