Kolkata [India], Sept. 12 (ANI): Coming down heavily on Pakistan for the four encounters which took place in Jammu and Kashmir yesterday where seven terrorists were killed and one policeman lost his life, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Monday warned Islamabad, saying it will have to pay heavily in the coming days for spreading terror and violence in India, especially the Kashmir Valley.

"Pakistan has been constantly trying to deteriorate the condition and create an atmosphere of violence in Jammu and Kashmir. Pakistan will have to pay for spreading terror in Jammu and Kashmir as well as the entire nation. You can see that now people in Balochistan are raising their voice against the atrocities conducted by Pakistan," BJP national secretary Rahul Sinha told ANI.

The BJP leader further said that Pakistan should introspect and see what is happening there within the country.

"But the way it is trying to interfere in the internal matters of India, the BJP Government will not tolerate it. That is why we all are raising our voice," he added.

A policeman died and another was injured while seven terrorists died in four separate encounters in Jammu and Kashmir yesterday.

Three of the encounters were with terrorists who were trying to infiltrate in Tangdhar, Gurez and Nowgam Sectors. The other was between the police and a group of terrorists who had held up in a building in Poonch Sector.

Dozens of people, meanwhile, were injured after a joint team of security forces carried out raids at Pulwama's Karimabaf village.

Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh chaired a high-level meeting on Kashmir later in the day, attended by the National Security Advisor (NSA) Ajit Doval, IB Chief Dineshwar Sharma, BSF DG KK Sharma and Home Secretary Anil Goswami. (ANI)
