Pakistan arrests key suspects over attack in Indian Kashmir

8 killed in India-Pakistan fighting amid high tensions

Pakistan has detained dozens of alleged militants after a suicide attack in Indian-held Kashmir last month which sent tensions between the nuclear-armed foes soaring, its interior minister said Tuesday.

The 44 detentions announced by Pakistan included the son and brother of Jaish-e-Mohammed leader Masood Azhar. Tensions have eased since then and on Monday a train service between Pakistan and India is set to be resumed.

Among those detained in Islamabad's latest crackdown on banned groups was Abdul Rauf - who a security source told AFP is a younger brother of Masood Azhar - the leader of Pakistan-based militant group Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) that claimed responsibility for the February 14 attack. Just $5 a month.

Pakistan's Supreme Court on Tuesday barred private channels from airing Indian films and television shows, amid escalating tensions between the two countries following the Pulwama terror attack. India's respected and authentic NTRO surveillance system has said that before Indian pilots dropped the bombs, 300 mobile phones were active there.

"We recently saw the horrific scale of the extremist attack in Jammu and Kashmir about three weeks ago". He said the 44 suspects detained across the country belonged to a number of groups, not just JeM. The Pakistan Ministry of Information and Broadcasting took to social media to discuss the event.

"We have seen how quickly terrorist groups evolve across the globe and this particular "brand" of terror may well become a global problem in the near future", the outlet also reports The Chief of the Indian Naval Staff, Admiral Sunil Lanba stating today. "There will be no compromise, no matter who is responsible".

"This violence was perpetrated by extremists aided and abetted by a State that seeks to destabilize India", the Admiral continued the harsh rhetoric from Indian officials towards Pakistan, despite not directly naming the nation.

Early Tuesday morning news broke of the Pakistan Navy allegedly thwarting an Indian submarine from entering Pakistani maritime territory.

The pilot was later handed back to New Delhi in what Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan called a "peace gesture".

The development comes after Pakistani foreign ministry claimed that that Russian foreign minister Sergey Lavrov had proposed to mediate between India and Pakistan. He also accused Pakistan of "indulging in false propaganda and spread of misinformation".

The deadly February 14 blast in the Pulwama district killed 40 Indian security force members and nearly brought the two nuclear-armed rival nations to the brink of war over allegations Pakistan-based anti-India Jaish-e-Mohammad, or JeM, plotted the violence.

The Indian ambassador to Russia Bala Venkatesh Varma has clarified saying there is no Russian offer of mediation between India and Pakistan and even if Moscow proposes one, New Delhi will not accept it.
