Indian High Commissioner to Pakistan Ajay Bisaria arrived in New Delhi on Saturday morning at the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) for consultations with senior officials and government officials over the Pulwama terror attack.

On Friday, the Government of India (GoI) had called Bisaria back home for consultations.

India had summoned Pakistan’s top envoy and lodged a strong protest over the killing of at least 40 CRPF soldiers in the Pulwama terror attack. India also conveyed that Pakistan must take immediate and verifiable action against the Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) and must immediately stop groups or individuals associated with terrorism operating from its territories.

Moreover, India on Friday announced, after a meeting of the Cabinet Committee on Security (CCS), that it has withdrawn ‘most favoured nation’ (MFN) status accorded to Pakistan.

At least 40 CRPF jawans lost their lives after a JeM terrorist targeted a CRPF convoy in Awantipora in Jammu and Kashmir’s Pulwama district on Thursday.
