PM Modi to hold CCS meeting to review border situation after India's surgical strikes
As a precautionary measure against counter offensive, a high alert has been in force along the LoC while more than two lakh people in hundreds of bordering villages are being evacuated both in Jammu and Kashmir and Punjab.
The Indian Army announced on Thursday that it had carried out surgical strikes in Pakistan-Occupied Kashmir at seven different terrorist launch pads in which "scores of terrorists were killed."
Pakistan has, however, described India's claim as a 'lie', saying it lost two soldiers in unprovoked cross-border firing by India.
Pakistan has warned that if Indian troops cross the border, it will strike back.
According to NDTV, Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has also called a cabinet meeting on Friday and a joint session of the Pakistani Parliament on October five.
