"We are confident that the world community would take due cognisance of India's smear campaign against Pakistan, and the deliberate creation of war hysteria", the foreign ministry statement had said.

Several blasts were heard inside the camp late last evening, breaking a lull after the initial exchange of fire, but the Army said the blasts were the result of sanitisation operation and there was no fresh contact with terrorists.

The defence minister said, "I wouldn't certainly state a timeline (for action against Pakistan)".

"Terrorists belonged to Jaish-e-Mohammed, sponsored by Azhar Masood residing in Pakistan and deriving support from there", Sitharaman said, citing intelligence reports that said the attackers were being controlled by handlers from across the border. She also spoke about locals aiding the terrorists.

In 2016, India said its troops had crossed into Pakistani Kashmir and carried out a raid on militant camps after an attack on an Indian army base in Kashmir.

She asserted that even though evidence of Pakistan's role may be shared, India still reserved the right to respond adequately at the time of its choosing. "Giving evidence to Pakistan is a continuous process". She said that Islamabad's culpability in such terror attacks had been proved over and over again.

"We are in Jammu and Kashmir, in a situation where there is an elected government led by the Honourable Chief Minister". Five Army men, including two Junior Commissioned Officers (JCOs), and a civilian were killed in the attack.
