After the attack on the Sunjuwan army camp in Jammu — which left five soldiers and one civilian dead and 11 injured -- Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti had said the situation cannot be allowed to continue and that India and Pakistan would have to talk to each other. She had added then that she knew she would be branded as "anti-national" for her comments.
The PDP and the BJP are in power in Kashmir.
Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman had on Monday said Pakistan "will pay for the misadventure". She added that the men who attacked the army camp seemed to have "local support".
Pakistan has since said "any Indian aggression shall be met with an equal and proportionate response".
Any #Indian aggression, strategic miscalculation or misadventure regardless of its scale, mode, or location will not go unpunished & shall be met with an equal & proportionate response. We will defend robustly every inch of #Pakistan's soil.— Govt of Pakistan (@pid_gov) February 13, 2018
