Islamabad: India is planning to attack Pakistan after staging a “mishap” in Jammu and Kashmir and this could happen between April 16 and 20, Pakistan Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi said on Sunday.

He urged the international community to reprimand India for what he said was its “irresponsible conduct”, the Dawn reported.

Qureshi told the media in Multan that Islamabad had “reliable intelligence that India is devising a new plan” to attack Pakistan.

“I am speaking responsibly, I hold a position of responsibility, and I know the words I utter will be picked up by the international media,” he said.

“Preparations are being made (by India), and there are chances of another attack against Pakistan. According to our information, the action could be taken between April 16-20.

“A new mishap could be staged in Indian Kashmir, just like (the) Pulwama (attack). And its purpose will be to justify their (India’s) offensive against Pakistan and to increase diplomatic pressure against Islamabad,” he said.

His reference was to the February 14 suicide bombing in Pulwama in Indian Kashmir that killed 40 Central Reserve Police Force troopers. The Pakistan-based Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) claimed responsibility, triggering major tensions between New Delhi and Islamabad.

“If it (action by India) happens, you can imagine the impact of the occurrence on the peace and stability of the region,” warned Qureshi.

He said that Pakistan had briefed the UN Security Council’s P5 members over the issue.

“We want the international community to take notice of this irresponsible behaviour and reprimand them (India) for taking this route,” the Minister said.

Qureshi criticized the global community for remaining silent over “Indian aggression” against Pakistan on February 26.

This was a reference to the Indian bombing of the JeM’s biggest training camp at Balakot in Pakistan.

He said that international powers did not reprimand India despite its “blatant violation of international laws” due to geopolitics.

“The international community, given the sensitivity of this flashpoint, should not remain silent,” he stated.

Nasa finds Chandrayaan-2 lander Vikram with help of Indian engineer

New York: NASA has found the crash site and debris of India’s Chandrayaan-2 Vikram moon lander following a tip from an Indian space enthusiast who examined pictures of the area of the moon taken by a US orbiting camera.

The site was located by Shanmuga Subramanian, who on his own scoured the pictures taken by the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbital Camera (LROC), NASA and Arizona State University announced on Monday confirming the find.

The first mosaic image of the likely crash site made from pictures taken by the LROC on September 17 was downloaded by several people to look for signs of the Vikram, NASA said.

One of them, Subramanian, contacted the LROC project with a positive identification of debris, it said.

Arizona State University (ASU), where the LROC project is located, said: “After receiving this tip, the LROC team confirmed the identification by comparing before and after images.”

When the images for the first mosaic were acquired on September 17, the impact point was poorly illuminated and could not easily be identified, it said.

But two image sequences were acquired on October 14 and 15, and on November 11 were better.

The November mosaic shows best the impact crater, ray and extensive debris field. The three largest pieces of debris are each about 2×2 pixels and cast a one pixel shadow.

The university said that based on Subramanian’s tip, the LROC team scoured the surrounding area in the new mosaics and found the impact site and the debris field.

The impact site is located at 70.8810 degree S, 22.7840 degrees E, at an elevation of 834 metres, it said.

“The debris first located by Shanmuga is about 750 metres northwest of the main crash site,” ASU said.

Vikram lost contact with the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) following its launch from Chandraayan-2 moon orbiter on September 6 when it tried to make a softlanding near the moon’s south pole.

In a statement NASA said: “Despite the loss, getting that close to the surface was an amazing achievement.”
