Indian High Commissioner to Pakistan Ajay Bisaria reached Islamabad on Saturday and will resume office soon, sources told ANI.

"We have and we will continue to act with responsibility and maturity", he added.

"This government will not allow Pakistan's land to be used for any kind of outside terrorism", Khan said while addressing a rally in southern Pakistan.

This starts with cracking down on the JeM and other terrorist groups such as Lashkar-e-Taiba which was responsible for the 2008 Mumbai terror attack, Mr Bera said, adding that unfortunately, Pakistan's behaviour towards these terrorist groups have been contradictory and self-defeating.

"Pakistan's High Commissioner to India will be returning to New Delhi, after completion of consultations in Islamabad", the FO later announced through a media statement.

Pakistan High Commissioner to India, Sohail Mehmood, who was called back to Islamabad following the February 14 Pulwama terror attack, has been sent back by the Imran Khan government. Kumar said that it was regrettable that Pakistan continues to remain in a state of denial even after JeM claim taking ownership of Pulwama attack. "Repeated requests by us and the global community for Pakistan to take action against such groups have been met with denial", Kumar said.

After the Pulwama attack, the Indian Air Force carried out a counter-terror operation, hitting what it said was a JeM training camp in Balakot, deep inside Pakistan on February 26. "In an interview to CNN on February 28, the Foreign Minister of Pakistan said, and I quote "Well, he is (Masood Azhar) in Pakistan according to my information" unquote", he said. They can further that goodwill by dismantling the terrorist networks that operate within Pakistan. The next day, Pakistan Air Force retaliated and downed a MiG-21 fighter jet of the Indian Air Force, while losing an F-16 jet of their own.

India on Saturday demanded that Pakistan take concrete steps against terrorists operating from its territory, while at the same time returning its top diplomat to Islamabad amid an easing of tensions between the nuclear rivals.
