Pakistan behind Kashmir attack, India tells UNSC

India on Monday told the main UN Security Council powers that it feels pressure to hit back at Pakistan after accusing its neighbour of arming four militants shot dead in a gun battle last week, diplomats who attended a special meeting said. Prime Minister Narendra Modi has said the four were plotting "to wreak major havoc" with an attack aiming to disrupt local elections in the disputed territory of Kashmir starting this week. A top Indian foreign ministry official handed over a dossier to envoys from the Security Council permanent members -- the United States, France, Britain, Russia and China -- which it said showed Pakistan involvement in the militant operation. India said the four were planning the "biggest" attack since a suicide bomber killed 40 Indian paramilitaries in Kashmir in February 2019.
