Modi, who chaired a meeting here on Monday to review the situation in Jammu and Kashmir in the wake of the attack that left 18 soldiers dead - one more soldier succumbed to his injuries in Delhi -wants clear evidence of Pakistan's complicity to be presented to all major global fora, including the upcoming UN General Assembly, the sources indicated.

The meeting was attended by Home Minister Rajnath Singh, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, Defence Minster Manohar Parrikar, National Security Adviser Ajit Doval, Army Chief General Dalbir Singh Suhag and other senior officials in the PMO, Defence Ministry and the Home Ministry.

The meeting is believed to have also considered several other options, the sources said, but these were likely to be measured and well thought-out.

At the meeting, the Prime Minister was also briefed about the use of ‘incendiary’ ammunition by the terrorists, though such ammunition can be found only with army establishments, a source said.

Such ammunition, experts believe, points to the backing the terrorists received from the Pakistan Army.

The sources said that Modi asked the security and other investigative agencies to collect all evidence that points to Pakistani involvement in the attack for presentation at international fora.

The sources said the broad thinking was that India must act without getting into the trap of emotions and anger after taking into accounts both the short- and long-term implications.
