India has attacked Pakistan for presenting a dossier against New Delhi at the United Nations reminding Pakistan of Abbottabad, the city where Al Qaeda chief Osama bin Laden hid for years and was killed on May 2, 2011. India called the documents presented by Pakistan in its dossier concocted and said that peddling false narratives is not new to the country which hosts the world’s largest number of UN-proscribed terrorists.
India’s Permanent Representative to the UN Ambassador TS Tirumurti on Tuesday tweeted that the dossier presented by Pakistan enjoys zero credibility. Islamabad’s UN envoy Munir Akram gave a dossier to UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres accusing India of stoking terrorism in Pakistan. This happened a day after New Delhi handed over a dossier to some Security Council members over the November 19 Nagrota terror attack when four terrorists of the Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) tried to slip into Jammu city. The Jaish is a terrorist organisation proscribed by the UN.
The Pakistan’s mission to the UN and its envoy had tweeted about the handing over of the dossier to the UN Secretary General. The tweet said the dossier contained alleged evidence of India’s systematic campaign to promote terrorism and active planning, aiding, abetting, financing and execution of terrorist activities in Pakistan.
On Monday, Foreign Secretary Harsh Vardhan Shringla briefed envoys of the US, Russia, Japan and France on the terror attack at Nagrota which was foiled by security forces. In the gunfight, four Jaish terrorists, who were hiding in a truck, were killed by security forces.
Shringla sensitised the envoys about India’s concerns regarding Pakistan’s sustained efforts to destabilise Jammu and Kashmir and to subvert upcoming local elections in the union territory, sources said. The arms recovered from the four dead militants could arm a minimum 11 people since they were carrying 11 AK-47s and almost 30 grenades, indicating that elections that are due to begin from November 28 are firmly on the terrorist radar.
