New Delhi: External Affairs Minister Salman Khurshid Tuesday said India will take steps necessary in its national interest in the wake of the ambush by terrorists and men in Pakistani Army uniforms that killed five Indian soliders in Jammu and Kashmir.
The incident took place along the Line of Control (LoC) in the Poonch sector post midnight.
"Whatever we feel is necessary in the national interest, those steps will be taken," Khurshid told reporters.
He said the government will seriously deliberate on the developments.
India Tuesday summoned Pakistani Deputy High Commissioner Mansoor Ahmad Khan and lodged a strong protest over the killing of five Indian soldiers.
A sixth soldier was injured in the attack.
