Talking to media persons at a press conference here at Army's Tiger Division Headquarter the defence minister said that Pakistan will have to pay heavy price for inflicting thousands bleeding cuts on India adding that the militants that carried the terror attack on Sunjwan military garrison had some local support. She said that army and the National Investigating Agency are probing the terror attack.
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. I repeat, Pakistan will pay for it," she said and added that the Ministry of Defence will stand by the Army. "We have to work together with the Jammu and Kashmir government with regard to dealing with the terror unleashed by the Pakistan in the state of Jammu and Kashmir," she said.
On Saturday, one of the deadliest terror attacks in recent years took place in Sunjwah army camp in Jammu and Kashmir, in which five army personnel and a civilian died while 10 people, including six women and children, were injured. She said that the two terrorist who were killed after a nearly 40-hour long operation are from Jaish-e Mohammad controlled by the handlers from Pakistan by its chief Masood Azhar.
In a scathing attack on Pakistan, the defence minister said the neighbouring state has not taken any action 'despite dossier after dossier given to them" adding that those responsible for Mumbai terror attack are freely roaming in Pakistan. She said that India is preparing water tight case against the Masood Azhar this time as well, but did not reveal the details.
"Even so, India will present evidence in this case, which the home ministry and the foreign ministry currently has. Giving evidence to Pakistan will be a "continuous process" because it has to be "proven again and again"," the Defence Minister said.
In a question on continuous attack by terrorist on families of security personals, the Minister said that it is a cowardly act of the militants who even didn't sphere the women.

In a question of meeting with Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti, she said that CM expressed deep anguish and concern over the loss of lives in terror attack.
In another question whether the army suspect the role of any insider behind the Sunjwan terror attack, the Defence Minister was short of words and didn't rule out the possibility of the same and said that same will be looked into. In another question on illegal construction outside army installation and airports, the Defence Minister said that this phenomena is everywhere and J&K is not an isolated issue.
Sitharaman said that the Sunjwah operation against the terrorist has been called off after 53 hours adding that the sensitization operation will remain continue.
