They are released once the situation becomes normal, the official said.

This starts with cracking down on the JeM and other terrorist groups such as Lashkar-e-Taiba which was responsible for the 2008 Mumbai terror attack, Mr Bera said, adding that unfortunately, Pakistan's behaviour towards these terrorist groups have been contradictory and self-defeating. "Our armed forces continue to maintain strict vigil and will remain determined in the defence of the nation and its citizens", Kumar added. But Pakistan, however, continues to generate a false account of the events.

His article came days after Pakistan, under huge global pressure after the Pulwama terror attack and India's air strikes against a JeM terrorist camp in Balakot in Pakistan's Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province on February 26, started taking actions against some of the terrorist outfits and their leaders over the past few days. And Pakistan instead of taking action against terrorist groups in its soil on February 26 chose to escalate through an act of aggression by violating our air space and attempting, unsuccessfully, to target our military facilities.

Meanwhile, White House bureau chief Steve Herman tweeted on Saturday: " US issues Level 2 travel alert for India - "exercise increased caution", warning Americans to not visit most of Jammu and Kashmir due to "terrorism and civil unrest" and not go within 10 km of the border with Pakistan 'due to the potential for armed conflict'".

"Questions should be asked to them as to where the fuselage of the aircraft is and what has happened to the pilots?"

Responding to a question, the official said India has given to the USA details of the violation of the end user agreement by Pakistan when it used F-16 fighter jets and advanced missiles against India on February 27.

The most enticing rumor regarding the new phone is that it could feature a quad-camera setup, just like the Galaxy S10 5G . Koh also confirmed that Samsung would ideally like to manufacture the phone in India, in order to keep the costs down.

Two intruding IAF jets were later downed by Pakistan and a pilot was captured. "We have asked the U.S. to also examine whether the use of F16 against India is in accordance with the terms and conditions of sale", Kumar added.

On the other hand, India's High Commissioner to Pakistan Ajay Bisaria has also reached Islamabad.

China's history of blocking the listing on technical grounds has been seen as a reflection of its allegiance to Pakistan, known as its "all-weather" ally, but its decision will be put to the test this month as the UN Security Council considers a fresh proposal to list Azhar on the UN terror list.

An influential US Congressman has warned that Pakistan will continue to slide into global isolation if it does not take actions against terrorist groups operating from its soil.

"This government will not allow Pakistan's land to be used for any kind of outside terrorism", Khan said while addressing a rally in southern Pakistan.

"We will not allow any militant group to function in our country now", he said.

Interestingly, only four Chinese nationals opted to take up Pakistani citizenship.
