According to Rediff, India is seeking action against Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM), the terror group which is alleged to have orchestrated the attack, within 72 hours, failing which the upcoming India-Pakistan talks will be in jeopardy.

The investigating officials have recovered a note that indicts JeM for the attacks. The investigation is now being carried out by the National Investigation Agency (NIA).

India expects Pakistan to act on the intelligence inputs and the evidence gathered against JeM. India is likely to tell Pakistan in clear terms to raid these groups and wants military courts to act against them.

The future of the upcoming Foreign Secretary level talks will be dependent on the action taken by Pakistan against Jaish-e-Mohammed. India is likely to inform Pakistan that terror and talks can’t go further without action on these groups.
