Pakistan expels Indian envoy and suspends trade over Kashmir

Pakistan announced Wednesday (August-7) that it is expelling the Indian High Commissioner and suspending bilateral trade with its nuclear-armed neighbor, days after New Delhi stripped the disputed Kashmir region of its special autonomy. 

Pakistani Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood confirmed the news to local media.

The move was undertaken in the aftermath of the Indian government ending special status for Jammu and Kashmir by scrapping Articles 35A and 370 of its Constitution foreign minister Shah Mahmood said that.

On the other hand on Tuesday (August-6) , Imran Khan, addressing a joint session of the National Assembly, had said that Pulwama-like attacks can follow the revocation of the special status for Jammu and Kashmir, which can lead to a war between India and Pakistan.
