A civilian and three alleged militants were also among those killed in Monday's confrontation.

Top military commander in Indian-administered Kashmir on Tuesday accused Pakistan's Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) of "controlling" the attack claimed by a Pakistan-based armed group, Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM).

The attack has led to calls within in India for a firm response against Pakistan.

Government forces launched a massive hunt after an explosives-packed van rammed a convoy transporting 2,500 security forces in Thursday's assault.

For the first time, the U.S. has publicly given the green light in advance for any Indian military action against Pakistan in the name of "self-defence against cross-border terrorism". "We'll be deciding soon how to remove the photo", he said.

The US response last week underscores just how far the Trump administration is ready to go in rallying India in its diplomatic, economic and strategic confrontation with China. It has revoked Pakistan's Most Favoured Nation trading status, raised customs duties to 200% and vowed to isolate it in the global community.

Additionally, he spoke to the Aaj Tak Hindi news this week, saying that the "Indian team is powerful enough to win the World Cup without playing Pakistan".

The attack in Pulwama was reported on Thursday, February 14, when a local militant affiliated to the Jaish-e-Mohammed rammed a auto full of explosives into a CRPF convoy. And we will take action not because of [external] pressure, but because these people would be enemies of Pakistan.
