Prime Minister Narendra Modi is slated to chaired a meeting of the Cabinet Committee on Security on Friday. The meeting is likely to review India’s preparation, in the case of a retaliatory strike by Pakistan-based terror outfits.
As the tensions have heightened, Modi is expected to assess the situation on the ground, sources said.
Pakistan has insisted that there was no strike by India even as its Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has called a cabinet meeting on Friday.
India carried out surgical strikes on seven terror launch pads across the LoC on the intervening night of September 28 and 29, with the Army saying it had inflicted “significant casualties” on terrorists preparing to infiltrate from PoK, days after Modi warned Uri attack would not go unpunished.
On Thursday, Pakistan summoned Indian High Commissioner Gautam Bambawale over “unprovoked firing” by India in which two Pakistani soldiers were killed.
Meanwhile, MoS Home Kiren Rijiju, RAW, IB, NSA Ajit Doval were also present in the meeting.
