India mulls 4 military options against Pakistan over Pulwama Attack: Indian media

NEW DELHI - Indian government is mulling over further punitive steps to punish the perpetrators and planers of Pulwama suicide bomb attack.

The government is in no doubt that the attack was carried out and planned from across the border and therefore is leaving no stone unturned to send a strong signal to Pakistan.

Central intelligence agencies have also sought help from its US and UK counterparts to get specific locations of of training camps in Pakistan territories.

The government is also looking at all military options available — from shallow ground-based attacks and occupation of some heights along the LoC to restricted but precise air strikes against terror and training camps in Kashmir across border.

The officials are also looking at carefully-calibrated airborne strikes with drones from across the border.

"The decision will be taken after looking at the complexities, challenges and opportunities before the forces," said a senior IPS officer, privy to high-level meetings on the issue.

The Ministry of External Affairs has been asked to get JeM head Masood Azhar blacklisted so that Pakistan pays an economic price for nurturing, harbouring and employing the terror outfit.
