Pakistan yesterday intensified its crackdown against Islamist militants, with the government announcing it had taken control of 182 religious schools and detained more than 100 people as part of its push against banned groups.

Pakistan Interior Secretary Azam Suleman Khan has claimed that further action will be taken against the JeM terrorists if New Delhi provided evidence of the group's involvement in the attack to Islamabad.

A government official told AFP that security forces detained members of Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM), which claimed responsibility for the February suicide attack, and United Nations -listed terrorist organization Jamaat-ud-Dawa (JuD). The head of the military's media wing, confirmed that "Pakistan had no choice but to respond to India's attack but avoided hitting military targets or causing casualties in the air strike because they did not want to escalate the crisis".
