The auto bomb attack on an Indian security convoy on Thursday, claimed by Pakistan-based militant group Jaish e Mohammad and carried out by a 20-year-old local youth, was the worst in decades.

Live updates: Security forces kill Pulwama attack mastermind A joint team of Army's 55 RR, CRPF and SOG cordoned off the area in the early morning hours on Monday following credible inputs about the presence of some terrorists. "When, where, by whom - our soldiers will decide".

"Once again the usual chest thumping and war rhetoric by Indians on the Pulwama attack without understanding the structural, institutional and social causes of the Kashmir independence movement", tweeted Anubhav Singh from India. Indian forces responded by declaring a round-the-clock curfew.

When asked if India will play against Pakistan in the World Cup, which starts on May 30 in England, Shukla ducked the question saying, "That we can't tell you know right now. Political maneuvering resulting from the Indian national elections probably will further constrain near-term opportunities for improving ties".

Meanwhile, Pakistan put its troops along the LoC and the WB on "high alert" to deal with any "misadventure" from across the border in the wake of Thursday's deadly attack in Indian-Occupied Kashmir, officials here said.

The group, which used to perpetrate attacks in the Jammu and Kashmir state, is affiliated with Taliban movement and al-Qaeda terrorist organization and aims to separate Kashmir from India and to merge it into neighboring Pakistan.

WAPO: Trump spent $50K on golf simulator for White House
The official added that Trump has not used his new simulator since the installation. It's not the first high-tech upgrade to come to the White House .

On Sunday, police said Indian forces had detained 23 men suspected of links to the militants who carried out the Thursday bombing.

The retired commander, Lt. Gen. D.S. Hooda, told The Associated Press on Saturday that while "some kind of limited (military) strike (against Pakistan) is more than likely", he hopes for "rethinking and reconciliation" from all sides in the conflict.

"I just hope this all leads to some introspection, some deep thinking and engagement to do everything afresh and rethink what we all should be doing to settle issues once for all", he said.

Most Kashmiris support the militants' demand that the territory be united either under Pakistani rule or as an independent country, while also participating in civilian street protests against Indian administration. Speaking at the sidelines of Munich Security Conference on Saturday, Pakistan's Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi said he was disappointed by India's "knee-jerk reaction" without proper investigation. "We will see what happens". "No amount of scapegoating Pakistan will change that reality".

India and Pakistan both administrate parts of Kashmir and both claim the volatile region in its entirety.
