Pakistani Defence Minister Khurram Dastgir Khan in an official statement further accused India of blaming Pakistan without substantial evidences.

Dastgir in an official statement said, “Pakistan will pay India in its own coin in case of any misadventure. Any aggression or misadventure regardless of its scale or location shall be met with an equal and proportionate response.”

He further stated, “Pakistan’s armed forces are alive and prepared fully to defend our country’s territorial integrity.”

Sitharaman on Monday had visited the Sunjuwan camp, where six Indian Army jawans were killed and at least 10 people suffered serious injuries in a terror attack on Sunday.
