Meanwhile, BCCI pulled down memorabilia and photos related to Pakistan cricket from its headquarters in Mumbai including autographed bats of Pakistani teams that competed against India and the famous photograph from the 1992 World Cup of Javed Miandad.

"Pakistan and India are both important countries in South Asia".

Pakistan's Prime Minister Imran Khan announced the order in a government statement released after a meeting of his National Security Committee.

Colville said the High Commissioner, Michelle Bachelet, is also concerned about reports from India that some elements are using the Pulwama attack as justification for threats and potential acts of violence targeting Kashmiri and Muslim communities living in different parts of India.

"China hopes that Pakistan and India can exercise restraint, engage in dialogues and realise an early "soft landing" of this issue", Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang said ahead of the next week's trilateral foreign ministers' meeting between China, India and Russian Federation.

Following the latest escalation of tensions between Pakistan and India, China on Wednesday called for restraint and said it would engage with India on the issue of listing of Jaish-e-Mohammad leader Maulana Masood Azhar as a global terrorist by the United Nations.

The Himalayan territory is split between Pakistani and Indian zones of control, but both countries claim it in its entirety and have fought two of their three wars over it.

'Losing their mind': Daniel Ricciardo's big swipe at Max Verstappen
Now in Renault's yellow-and-black livery, Ricciardo said he made that choice to avoid the "risks" of staying put. Red Bull finished third in the constructors' standings last season with 419 points.

Talking to journalists, Ghulam Sarwar Khan said that India was staging a drama to hide its failure in Pulwama attack.

An armed rebellion erupted in Kashmir in 1989, demanding independence or a union with Pakistan.

News agency AFP on Thursday reported that bunkers were being rebuilt and a blackout ordered in Chakothi, a border village in Pakistan-administered Kashmir.

"India has always accused Pakistan without any proof", said Imran, adding that "If India has actionable evidence, they should share them with us and we will take action".

America, through a White House statement, decried the bombing as a "heinous terrorist attack by a Pakistan-based terrorist group", that only strengthened its resolve to bolster counterterrorism cooperation in the region. The officials declined to be named as the talks were still underway in Paris.

India cancelled Most Favoured Nation trade privileges for Pakistan and imposed 200 percent duty on goods coming from Pakistan, further squeezing the barely $2bn bilateral trade.
