The federal government has decided to hold a high-level huddle next week to take major decisions to 'monitor' and 'tackle' the activities of India's premier intelligence agency RAW in Pakistan, BBC Urdu reported on Saturday. 

The meeting will review evidence of the agency's involvement in recent incidents of terrorism in Karachi, Balochistan and other areas.

According to an official of the interior ministry, the consultations will be held under the chairmanship of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, and will be attended by heads of civilian and military intelligence agencies as well as civilian and military higher-ups.

Pakistan zindabad | 5 years ago | Reply @clean up: Brother, evidence had been provided to Mr. Manmohan Singh when he was PM of India. Secondly, proof has also been provided to US, UK and Afghanistan governments. Please note that Indian leaders are not innocent and have not taken bath in the Ganges river either.
