As police gunned down two suspected Pakistani terrorists in Noida early on Sunday, Minister of State for External Affairs Anand Sharma reminded Pakistan to fulfill its commitment of fighting terrorism.
"Terror groups operating in Pakistan are trying to destabilise India," Sharma told the Times Now news channel.
"The Noida encoutner (shootout) shows that terror groups are still active in Pakistan though we have repeatedly told Pakistan to dismantle the terror infrastructure," the minister said.
Two suspected Pakistani terrorists were killed in a gun battle with the Uttar Pradesh Anti-Terrorism Squad (ATS) in Noida, a satellite town of the national capital, at 2.15 am.
Uttar Pradesh Additional Director General of Police (Law and Order) Brij Lal identified the two as Abu Ismail of Rawalkot and Farookh alias Ali Ahmed of Rahimyar Khan in Pakistan.
