She took to Twitter following the attacks on Sunjuwan Army camp in Jammu and a CRPF camp in Karan Nagar, Srinagar, and said, "Dialogue with Pakistan is necessary if we are to end bloodshed".

"Yes, all the evidence which have been collected will be compiled and definitely the evidence will be given as always to Pakistan". In the post she wrote, "I know I will be labeled anti-national by news anchors tonight but that doesn't matter".

"India was making these allegations to divert attention from its brutality in trying to control the armed revolt in Kashmir and warned against any retaliatory measures across the LoC".

While Sitharaman reiterated that Pakistan will pay the price for its "misadventure", CM Mufti called for resuming peace dialogue with Pakistan as the "solution" for troubles in the valley.

"Pakistan is expanding the arc of terror.resorting to cease-fire violations to assist infiltration", she said.

It accused India of carrying out "state terrorism in the Indian-occupied Jammu & Kashmir" through incarceration of peaceful and unarmed demonstrators, extra-judicial killings and summary executions.

Shiv Dev Singh Jamwal, the police chief for Jammu, announced the high alert in the region after the attack that also resulted in 10 further injuries. "They then hid in a nearby building", Sahi said of Monday's attack. "Activities of terrorists in the hinterlands are severely curtailed due to relentless efforts of security forces", the Defence Minister added.

Let it be known that Mufti's statement comes after alleged ceasefire violations by Pakistan along the Line of Control on an nearly daily basis over the past several weeks. Three terrorists were also gunned down.

Asserting that as always, India will prepare dossier in Sunjuwan attack too and give it to Pakistan, Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman on Monday said Mumbai terror attackers are still "free" and "happily roaming" in Pakistan.

"The terrorists belonged to JeM, sponsored by Masood Azhar residing in Pakistan and deriving support from therein", she said, adding that the possibility of local support was being investigated. There are conflicting reports about the actual number of casualties and the number of terrorists.

Meanwhile, security agencies are on their toes as they foresee an increase in such incidents in coming months with overground workers of terror outfits like Jaish and Lashkar becoming active again. "I repeat, Pakistan will pay for it", Sitharaman said. "The fourth terrorist must have been a guide and may not have entered the Camp area", Sitharaman said.

The Defence Minister said, evidence against the terrorists has been compiled and will be given to Pakistan.

Home Minister Rajnath Singh is meeting the top security brass on Monday to take stock of the situation and make a strong pitch for more intelligence-based operations to flush out the terrorists who are still at large. She said, "I compliment the valour of our fearless soldiers".
