"India rejects as an irresponsible and preposterous statement by Pakistan Foreign Minister that it will attack Pakistan again", the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) said.

On February 26, India said they struck a training camp of Pakistan-based Jaish-e-Mohammed, the group who claimed responsibility for the vehicle bomb, breaching the Kashmiri Line of Control (LOC) with an aerial assault.

He said on Sunday that an attack could take place between April 16 and 20, adding that Pakistan had told the five permanent members of the U.N. Security Council of its concerns.

Two days later, Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan laid the foundation stone of the corridor in Narowal, 125 km from Lahore.

Meanwhile, India on Sunday rejected as "irresponsible and preposterous" the Pakistan foreign minister's claims. "India reserves the right to respond firmly and decisively to any cross border terrorist attack", he added.

The Indian Air Force has reiterated that it shot down a Pakistani F-16 fighter jet during the air action on February 27 in the Nowshera sector near the Line of Control.

An Indian jet was brought down during the fight and its pilot captured when he ejected on the Pakistani side of the border.

Mr Qureshi, who is also the vice-chairman of the ruling Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI), had feared that a new incident like Pulwama suicide attack might be staged in India-held Kashmir to use it to increase diplomatic pressure on Pakistan and justify Indian aggression.

The spokesperson Dr Mohammad Faisal, on March 29, had invited Indian media to Pakistan for coverage of the meeting between Islamabad and New Delhi for Kartarpur Corridor. After his release, a fragile ceasefire resumed between the countries, but things could soon change according to claims made by Pakistani officials.

Pakistan has come forward with claims of "reliable intelligence" showing Indian authorities are planning another attack on Pakistan-occupied Kashmir.

Pakistan has also summoned India's deputy high commissioner to protest against what it says are India's plans.

India blamed the attack on a Pakistan-based militant group, a charge Islamabad denies.

Pakistani authorities have handed over 100 detained Indian fishermen to their country's officials at the Wahga border crossing.
