CCS meets as tension continues at India-Pakistan border

New Delhi, Oct 5 (IANS) The Cabinet Committee on Security met here on Wednesday as tension continues at the India-Pakistan border.

The meeting was chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Situation has been tense at India-Pakistan border since the September 18 attack at an army camp in Uri town of Jammu and Kashmir which left 19 soldiers dead. India blamed Pakistan based Jaish-e-Mohammad militant group for the attack.

The relations between the two neighbouring nations further deteriorated after the Indian Army on September 28 night carried out surgical strikes to destroy terrorist launch pads across the Line of Control in Pakistan-administered Kashmir.
