New Delhi, Sept 19 (IBNS): In the wake of Sunday's deadly terror attack on Uri Army camp in Jammu and Kashmir in which 18 soldiers were martyred, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday held a meeting with his senior ministers and decided that Pakistan must be diplomatically isolated at every international forum, media reports said.

"India would present all actionable evidence if required at these forums, it was decided at the meeting," NDTV quoting sources said.

PM Modi earlier in the evening also met President Pranab Mukherjee here.

During the meeting, Modi  briefed him on the developments related to the Uri terror attack in Jammu and Kashmir which left 18 Indian jawans martyred, media reports said.

The official Twitter handle of the President of India posted: "PM @narendramodi called on #PresidentMukherjee at Rashtrapati Bhavan this evening & held discussions with President."

Meanwhile,  the number of soldiers killed in Sunday's deadly terror attack on Uri Army camp in Jammu and Kashmir rose to 18  after a jawan succumbed to his injuries on Monday.

An official reports said sepoy K Vikas Janardhan succumbed to his injuries at R & R hospital in New Delhi.

Eighteen more injured jawans are now in hospital, six of them in serious condition.

On Sunday early morning, four terrorists sneaked into the Uri Army camp and lobbed grenades before making brush fire as most of the soldiers were in sleep.

All the attackers were also killed in counter Army attack.

In Srinagar, J & K Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti paid tributes to the martyred soldiers.

An official said the CM later visited the injured soldiers admitted in the 92 base hospital of the Army.
