Pakistan Detains Suspects Tied to Indian Kashmir Attack


The 44 detentions announced by Pakistan included the son and brother of Jaish-e-Mohammed leader Masood Azhar.

Still, an uneasy calm prevailed Tuesday along the Line of Control, which divides Kashmir between Pakistan and India, and which saw an intense exchange of fire between the two nuclear-armed rivals last week, killing several people and at least two Pakistani soldiers.

According to the ministry, Rauf and Hamad Azhar were among a list of suspects in a file on last month's bombing that India gave to Pakistan over the weekend through diplomatic channels, urging Islamabad to take action against suspects linked to the killing of its soldiers.

"This is an across the board action".

Lu Kang added, "We genuinely hope that India and Pakistan, as important countries in South Asia, will maintain good neighbourliness and friendly ties and settle issues through friendly consultation". He went on to explain the 44 suspects already were under observation and taken into custody for investigation.

Jaish-e-Mohammed is the group that claimed responsibility for the attack on the Indian convoy. He has been designated as a terrorist by both the United States and the United Nations.

Also Tuesday, authorities added two charities known as Jamaat-ud Dawa (JuD) and Falah-e-Insaniat Foundation (FIF), which are fronts for LeT, to the list of banned organizations.

The Paris-based Financial Action Task Force (FATF) has been pressing Pakistan to effectively curb activities, financing and money laundering by terrorist groups involved in cross-border attacks.

It's not uncommon for Pakistan to round up high-profile suspects in the immediate aftermath of an attack, when pressure is at a peak. The announcement is another sign of the lessening of mutual tensions that had prompted both countries to recall their respective officials. Islamabad denies the accusations.

Indian officials also dismissed Pakistani claims of shooting down an Indian Sukhoi fighter jet as a "total lie" and said "all options are on the table" if another terrorist attack against India comes from Pakistani territory.

Islamabad condemned what it said was a violation of its airspace and promised a military response, rejecting as false allegations that any camps existed at the site. He underscored that despite the rhetoric sparking tension between Pakistan and India over the Kashmir region, Qazi stressed Pakistan will continue to use the means of dialogue for peace.
