Foreign Office Spokesperson Qazi Khalilullah addressed weekly media briefing in Islamabad.

ISLAMABAD (Web Desk) - The Foreign Office today (Thursday) rejected India s assertion that a terrorist captured alive after a terror attack in Udhampur yesterday was of Pakistani-origin and asked India to refrain from making immediate accusations.

"We have also seen media reports and I will not offer any comment on that issue. We expect the Indian authorities to share information with us on the claims that are being made in the media," Foreign Office Spokesperson Syed Qazi Khalilullah responded to a question regarding arrest of a suspected terrorist in Jammu and Kashmir.

"We have said many a times that making immediate accusations on Pakistan is not correct. These things should be based on facts. We expect that whenever Pakistan is being accused of something, it will be accompanied with correct evidence," he said. 

Earlier on Wednesday, Indian authorities claimed that they have arrested a suspected terrorist identified as Usman Khan, a resident of Faisalabad city, from Udhampur.
