As India explores diplomatic options to pressurize Pakistan to act on terrorists on its soil, Islamabad on Monday summoned its envoy in India for consultations.

“We have called back our High Commissioner in India for consultations. He left New Delhi this morning,” Dr. Mohammad Faisal, Spokesperson of Pakistan Ministry of Foreign Affairs said in a tweet.

On Thursday, 40 CRPF soldiers were killed in Pulwama after a vehicle laden with explosives hit a bus in a 74 vehicle convoy carrying about 2500 personnel. Pakistan based terror group Jaish-e-Mohammad had claimed responsibility for the attack.

Soon after the incident, India summoned its High Commissioner in Islamabad Ajay Bisaria for consultations.

India has already withdrawn the Most Favored Nation (MFN) status given to Pakistan and hiked customs duty by 200% on imports.
