Addressing a news conference in Multan, Qureshi said there is "reliable intelligence that India is readying for another act of aggression" against Pakistan.

The Ministry of External Affairs did not issue an official response, but sources said Pakistan was trying to create war hysteria.

He reiterated that Pakistan took necessary steps to reduce tension with India after Pulwama attack in which 40 Indian paramilitary personnel were killed.

Last week, the Indian government faced embarrassment when a Foreign Policy magazine report citing senior United States defence officials stated that none of Pakistan's F-16 jets had been shot down by the Indian Air Force ─ contrary to India's claims ─ on Fen 27, when tensions between both countries had spiked in the aftermath of the Pulwama attack. "This action could possibly take place between the 16th to the 20th of April".

Qureshi further added that the information has been shared with Prime Minister Imran Khan, worldwide community, and permanent members of the UN Security Council.

"Pakistan has been advised to use established diplomatic and DGMO channels to share any actionable and credible intelligence it has about imminent terror attacks". The Indian government has not yet responded.

India struck the biggest terrorist training camp of terror group Jaish-e-Muhammed deep inside Pakistan on 26 February almost two weeks after the Pulwama terror attack in which 40 CRPF personnel were killed.

Khloe went on: "I should start listening to MJ my grandma, who told me to start dating accountants or something like that".

"I am saying it with responsibility and I have a responsible position, I know each word I say would make headlines in the worldwide press", he said, stressing the reliability of his claim.

The attack could take place between April 16 and 20, he said.

"A new mishap could be staged.And its objective will be to justify their [India's] offensive against Pakistan and to increase diplomatic pressure against Islamabad", he alleged. He said that global powers did not reprimand India despite blatant violation of worldwide laws on the part of India due to geopolitics.

The situation was deflated within days, with Islamabad quickly releasing a captured Indian pilot from the plane it shot down.

Subsequently on Feb 26, Indian warplanes violated Pakistani airspace and allegedly struck what New Delhi claimed was a Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) training camp - a claim never proved by India.

Qureshi also criticised the global community for remaining silent over Indian aggression against Pakistan on February 26.

FO spokesperson said that Indian deputy High commissioner was summoned at Foreign Office to lodge a protest against possible Indian aggression.
