Earlier on Monday, Minister of State (MoS) Home Affairs Hansraj Ahir said that India would not forgive Pakistan for the attack.

"We will not forgive Pakistan's actions. It will prove to be Pakistan's foolishness and will cost them dearly," Ahir said.

In the recent past, Pakistan has been resorting to unprovoked and indiscriminate firing along the Line of Control (LoC), killing and injuring Indian troops.
