Pulwama Terror Attack: India detains 23 men with suspected links to Jaish-e-Mohammad group
Updated : February 18, 2019 07:01 AM IST
The 23 men included members and sympathizers of Jaish-e-Mohammad, the militant group which has claimed responsibility for Thursday's attack, the deadliest on Indian security forces in decades.
India has demanded Pakistan close down the Jaish and other Islamist militant groups that operate from its soil, while Islamabad has rejected suggestions it was linked to the attack.
Representatives of the National Investigating Agency (NIA) questioned the suspects about the bombing on Sunday, two security officials said.
