Qureshi told the media that Islamabad had "reliable intelligence that India is devising a new plan" to attack Pakistan.

The Ministry of External Affairs did not issue an official response, but sources said Pakistan was trying to create war hysteria.

Earlier, in a suicide bombing attack by Pakistan based terror group Jaish-e-Mohammad in Jammu and Kashmir's Pulwama, more than 40 CRPF personnel had lost their lives.

The Indian military may attack Pakistan sometime in less than two weeks, Pakistani Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi claimed citing "reliable intelligence". "As per our information this could take place between April 16 and 20", Mr Qureshi told reporters in his hometown of Multan.

"Preparations are being made, and there are chances of another attack against Pakistan".

Addressing the media in Multan, the foreign minister said, "I am speaking responsibly, I hold a position of responsibility, and I know the words I utter will be picked up by the worldwide media".

The auto bombing triggered a violent reaction from India, which on February 27 launched an air strike on what it said was a training base of the group.
