Lieutenant-General Dhillon said one of the militants killed on Monday was from Indian Kashmir while the other two were from Pakistan.

New Delhi blamed Islamabad for the attack but the latter rejected the allegations. Some of the students have also been subjected to torture.

The gunfight comes less than a week after 49 CRPF troopers were killed on February 14 after their convoy was targeted by a JeM suicide bomber on the Jammu-Srinagar highway in Pulwama.

The narrator of the video, who is, apparently, a Chandigarh resident, can be heard telling that the Kashmiri students who were stationed in the gurudwara had not eaten for days before they finally arrived in the shelter.

"They have protection. Our officers and men are exposed, whereas they're in the built up area, hiding", said K. Rajendra Kumar, a former director general of police in Jammu and Kashmir.

Addressing India's politicians, Khan stated, "You want to remain stuck in the past, and each time an incident happens in Kashmir, you want to hold Pakistan responsible and instead of trying to resolve the Kashmir issue, starting a dialogue or moving forward make Islamabad your whipping boy again and again". Moreover it blames any protests against its heavy-handed military occupation of Kashmir on the activities of separatist groups, but these organizations only emerged in response to New Delhi's abuse of the basic democratic rights of Kashmiris.

A 2016 attack on Indian forces in Kashmir that killed 19 led to cross border "surgical strike" ground raids in retaliation by Delhi.

Police say the three suspected militants who were killed are members of Pakistan-based group Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM), which said it was responsible for Thursday's suicide bombing.

"We were tracking down top leadership since the attack". Rebels have been fighting Indian control since 1989.

"Pakistan has given a very measured and responsible response to the baseless accusations of India", Qureshi said. The Indian ruling elite has expressed dismay over a possible United States withdrawal from Afghanistan after any deal with Taliban, as it clearly sees this as an opportunity for its arch rival Pakistan to gain a major foothold there.

Pakistan did not immediately comment on Dhillon's remarks.

JeM chief Masood Azhar is in Pakistan and India has been calling for him being tagged a designated global terrorist by the UN.

"We send our deepest condolences to the CPRF and their families, the people of India and the Indian government following the awful #KashmirTerrorAttack".

"Pakistan won't just think to retaliate". Pakistan's information minister Fawad Chaudhry said in an interview that Pakistan would take action against anyone if India share evidence.

India has long accused Pakistan of supporting militants in Muslim-majority Kashmir, a Himalayan territory divided between the two nuclear archrivals but claimed in full by both since independence from British colonial rule in 1947.
