India rejects Pakistan's allegations, says it has not imposed restrictions on pilgrims bound for the country

New Delhi: India on Saturday has said that it did not imposed any restrictions on pilgrims travelling to Pakistan amid heightened tensions between the two nations following a string of terror attacks in the Kashmir Valley.

Six army mem were killed by terrorists who struck at the sprawling camp of the 36 Brigade of the Jammu and Kashmir Light Infantry (JKLI) on last week, while two terrorists were killed by security forces after a failed attempt to attack a CRPF camp, ending a 32-hour gunbattle in Srinagar.

"Of course not," External Affairs Ministry spokesperson Raveesh Kumar said on Friday when asked if India had imposed any restriction on pilgrims.

The clarification comes after Pakistan reportedly blamed India for withdrawing visa applications of pilgrims from the Pakistan High Commission in New Delhi.
