The apex court asked the Union Of India and Jammu and Kashmir government to file an affidavit in the case, and fixed the matter to September 30 for further hearing.

The two met Khan and Pakistani army chief, General Qamar Javed Bajwa, during their day-long trip.

"The discussions were so confidential that only top officials of the foreign ministry were allowed to sit in those meetings", an official told The Express Tribune requesting anonymity.

With Pakistan-occupied Kashmir becoming the cynosure of the Imran Khan government following Islamabad's focus on Jammu and Kashmir after its special status was revoked and amid warnings of India taking over PoK, the provincial government in Muzaffarabad on Monday announced generous monthly allowances for its employees.

The appeal to angry youths came days after thousands of unarmed young people marched toward the frontier to protest the crackdown in Indian-administered Kashmir, triggering clashes with police.

According to him, Pakistan was, until recently, making attempts to open dialogue with India to resolve differences over the Kashmir issue, but pulled back after learning that New Delhi was trying to blacklist them in Financial Action Task Force.

"These conditions include lifting of the curfew and other restrictions imposed in Kashmir, the paper reported".

"You are looking at two nuclear-armed countries eyeball to eyeball, and anything can happen", Khan said while talking about heightening tensions between India and Pakistan over Kashmir.

Pakistan downgraded its diplomatic relations with India and expelled the Indian high commissioner following the revocation.

In an interview with Al Jazeera TV, he said after completion of five years, the PTI government would leave behind 'a surplus economy and it would be the last International Monetary Fund package for the country.

Given the Saudi crown prince's close ties with both Imran and Modi, he is likely to offer his "good offices" to reduce tensions between the two neighbours, the report said.
