New Delhi: Following the Uri attack which provoked global outrage towards Pakistan for its unrelenting support to terrorism, Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has evidently told the Pakistani Army to act against terror outfits like the Jaish-e-Mohammad, reports the Dawn.
“Military-led intelligence agencies are not to interfere if law enforcement acts against militant groups that are banned or until now considered off-limits for civilian action… (and) fresh attempts be made to conclude the Pathankot investigation and restart the stalled Mumbai attacks-related trials in a Rawalpindi anti-terrorism court,” the Dawn quotes Nawaz Sharif as saying during a meeting with army officials on Tuesday.
“Astounded onlookers describe a stunned room that was immediately aware of the extraordinary, unprecedented nature of the exchange,” said the newspaper.
It is also being said that the meeting was highly intense and bold in tone which imminently led to the question of security establishment letting the arrested persons got scot-free.
Pakistan has been condemned internationally following the Uri attack where 19 Indian soldiers were killed. Pakistan’s alleged links to terrorism has been repeatedly criticised by foreign leaders.
