New Delhi: Just weeks after India removed the special status given to Jammu and Kashmir, Pakistan - after restoring to diplomatic means which failed, is now trying to create tensions at the Line of Control.

It has been learnt that Islamabad has deployed medium-range artillery along LoC and mobilised its army as well.

On Monday, in an address to his nation on Kashmir, Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan had given a 'nuclear threat.' He had said, "India should remember that if situation turns out worse and moves towards war, they should remember that both countries have nuclear weapons and one should remember that repercussions will be around the world, not just in India and Pakistan."

Imran has also said, "Pakistan will now go to every extent, till the last breath on the issue (of Kashmir)."

Pakistan had beem previously using small weapons when violating ceasefire. India, in retaliation, used Bofors to deal with increased Pakistani efforts to destabilise the situation at the LoC.

It is understood that Islamabad has now also deployed its Special Service Group (SSG), an elite commando force, and Border Action Team (BAT) at the LoC.

On the night July 31 and August 1, Indian forces thwarted BAT attempt to cross the LoC at Karen sector.

Increased movement of terrorist has been reported in Muzffarabad, Rawalakot and Kotli in Pakistan-occupied-Kashmir.
