India says mastermind of Kashmir bombing killed in fighting

The 23 men included members and sympathizers of Jaish-e-Mohammad, the militant group which has claimed responsibility for Thursday's attack, the deadliest on Indian security forces in decades. While an India-Pakistan match always gives fans that extra adrenaline rush, we have to wait and find out if it will be a reality during WC 2019.

"In the encounter, two militants and four army soldiers have been killed". It said 104 students who were staying in private accommodations in the Ambala district of Haryana had been moved to hostels of a university guarded by police.

Local residents said troops destroyed one civilian house by explosives during the fighting.

The officials say Umair had "radicalized and motivated" the Kashmiri school dropout who rammed a auto laden with explosives into the convoy on Thursday.

At least four soldiers died Monday in a fierce gunfight with rebels in Indian-administered Kashmir just four days after a suicide bomber killed 41 paramilitaries in the troubled territory, officials said.

Mohammad Yunis, a journalist in Pulwama, said troops were searching the village.

Yesterday, responding to Indian allegations, Foreign Secretary Tehmina Janjua said India needs to introspect and respond to questions about its security and intelligence lapses that led to the attack. The two countries have fought three wars since gaining independence from the United Kingdom in 1947.

Mr. Modi had on Friday warned Pakistan that attacks such as the one on CRPF soldiers in Pulwama will not weaken India and those responsible for such strikes will have to pay a "very heavy price".

Kashmir is divided between India and Pakistan and claimed by both in its entirety.

"We are at a unsafe moment, and authorities must do everything they can to uphold the rule of law", said Aakar Patel, head of Amnesty India. "Ordinary Kashmiris across India who are only seeking to improve their lives should not be singled out for violence simply because of where they come from".

India is slated to play Pakistan in the round-robin stage of the World Cup on June 16 in Old Trafford, Manchester.

In 2016, following an attack on India's military base in the border region of Kashmir, PM Modi had ordered surgical strikes deep inside Pakistan controlled Kashmir.

The confrontation piled more pressure on the Indian government, which has blamed Pakistan for Thursday's suicide attack on a paramilitary convoy that sparked widespread calls for action against the country's neighbour and nuclear arch-rival.
