Briefing the envoys from P-5 countries on the encounter and how the terror attempt was foiled by India, the foreign secretary urged them to keep the pressure on Pakistan to adhere to its worldwide obligations and bilateral commitments of not allowing any territory under its control to be used for terrorism against India or any other country, top level sources told ThePrint.

On the other hand, he said, India's history of conducting false flag operations in the Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK) and inside India to malign Pakistan was too well-known.

India's foreign secretary Harsh Shringla briefed the first set of foreign envoys of Pakistan's involvement in the Nagrota terror attack, giving them detailed evidence of how Islamabad continues to support cross border terror.

The four were stopped at a toll booth in the Nagrota area of Jammu last Thursday and were killed in a three-hour gun battle with security forces.

The Indian side highlighted the secret tunnel unearthed beneath the International Border in Jammu's Samba Sector on Sunday and said the four militants who were killed in the encounter on November 19 used the tunnel to carry out their plans.

It was also shared how preliminary investigations by police and intelligence authorities, markings on the recovered AK-47 rifles and other items led India to believe that the terrorists belonged to JeM, sources added.
