A day after ISI chief warned that Pakistan had already “identified targets” and “rehearsed” for an attack on India, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on Monday met the three service chiefs.
Indian media Reports said Dr Singh reviewed the defence preparedness of the country with the chiefs of the Army, Navy and Air Force in the wake of hostile comments from Pakistan and the death of al Qaeda chief Osama bin Laden.
On Saturday, a newspaper had quoted Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) chief Ahmed Shuja Pasha as saying that a contingency plan was in place, and that targets inside India had already been identified. “We have also carried out rehearsal for it,” Pasha said during his in-camera briefing to a joint sitting of the Pakistan Parliament.
