India's diplomatic initiative to ensure Pakistan takes action against terrorist groups and winds up the terror training infrastructure was led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi and foreign minister Sushma Swaraj, according to the person mentioned above.
Pakistan has detained two close relatives of the leader of militant group Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM), Masood Azhar, as part of a new crackdown against militant groups, the interior ministry spokesman said on Tuesday.

Pakistan's foreign minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi on Monday hinted that his country may not oppose a joint move by France, Britain and the United States in the UN Security Council to list Jaish-e-Mohammed terror group's chief Masood Azhar as a global terrorist. India Wednesday handed over to Pakistan a dossier on "specific details" of involvement of JeM in the attack. Pakistan, from the get-go, rejected the Indian claim, urging New Delhi to share "actionable evidence" so that it could act upon it. "If we obtain any further evidence or if we have to investigate any organisation, the government can take any organisation into custody at any time", he said.
India accuses Pakistan of allowing militant groups to operate on its territory and says Pakistani security agencies played a role in the attack, which was claimed by JeM and killed 40 Indian troops.
