A day after Pakistan’s spy chief threatened reprisal attacks in case New Delhi attempted a special operation against terror suspects on its soil, India Monday carried out a comprehensive review of its security preparedness amidst reports of the presence of Chinese soldiers in Pakistani Kashmir. Prime Minister Manmohan Singh chaired the review with the three armed forces chiefs providing their inputs to the assessment of the security situation against the back drop of the killing of Osama bin Laden, sources said here.
Pakistan’s Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) chief Ahmed Shuja Pasha had warned India that an Abbottabad-like operation by New Delhi would invite a fitting response, with Pakistani armed forces having “identified” specific targets and carried out “rehearsals” to attack them.
The Army has also raised its alertness level in the wake of reports that Pakistan may try to infiltrate militants into Jammu and Kashmir. It has also raised an alarm over Chinese military personnel’s presence in Pakistani Kashmir in the guise of engineering workers and the threat posed by the large neighbour to the security of Jammu and Kashmir.

Earlier, a senior Army commander on Sunday said there is a considerable Chinese presence in Pakistan occupied Kashmir (PoK), terming it a “cause of concern”.
“There is a considerable amount of Chinese presence in PoK,” General Officer Commanding-in-Chief (GOC-in-C) of Army’s northern command Lt General K T Parnaik said.
“Now there presence is mainly because of infrastructure development. We are aware that the Chinese are assisting in construction of a highway...a large number of dams and infrastructure projects have been developed by the Chinese in PoK as well as the northern areas. These areas are very close to the LoC,” Parnaik said.
