New Delhi, Oct 5, 2016: Amid rising tension at the India-Pakistan border, the Cabinet Committee on Security met here on Wednesday.

The meeting was chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

The situation has been tense at India-Pakistan border since the September 18 attack at an army camp in Jammu and Kashmir’s Uri that resulted in the death of 19 soldiers. India blamed Pakistan-based Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) terrorist group for the attack.

The relations between the two neighbouring countries further deteriorated after the Indian Army on September 28 carried out surgical strikes to destroy militants launch pads across the LoC in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir.

Meanwhile, according to sources, the Indian Army has provided a 90-minute video of the surgical strike to the government after Pakistan denies over the attack.
