With two terror strikes on security forces in Jammu and Kashmir in two days, one at Sunjwah and other at Karan Nagar Srinagar, Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman today declared that Pakistan will "pay" for its role in the attacks that carried out by the militants in state of Jammu and Kashmir.
"I wouldn't certainly state a timeline (for action against Pakistan). But will say this, Pakistan will pay for this misadventure.
