All options will be available in case of another terror strike: Top govt sources 

Top sources on Tuesday said that even as the defences forces have achieved the intended goal in Balakot strike, the government is ready to employ 'all options' in case there is another terror strike from Pakistani soil.

The sources said that India plans to keep Pakistan under bilateral and global pressure to dismantle terror infrastructure. Since Balakot strike, India is trying to build maximum pressure on Pakistan on the issue of terrorism, they said. 

Accusing Pakistan of trying to create confusion by sorting mediation by other countries, the top sources said that India will not be deterred in its war against terrorism. "No offer of mediation from any country, India has told the world that this is not an India Pakistan issue, this is an issue of terrorism," they added.

Recent interviews by Pakistan FM Shah Mehmood Qureshi confirms Pak government is in touch with JeM Chief Masood Azhar, no denial that Azhar is chief of Jaish-E-Mohammad. This makes India's case to put Masood Azhar in UNSC 1267 sanctions list, the sources told India TV. 

On reports of Masood Azhar being unwell, the sources said that India takes such reports with a pinch of salt, earlier had seen similar reports on Mullah Omar and Osama Bin Laden as well. Our effort is to bring Masood Azhar to book, they said. 

They also added that India has shared with the US the evidence of the use of F16 jet by Pakistan during retaliatory aerial combat and is confident it is investigating Pakistan using the falcon fighter jet against India.
