[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]US National Security Adviser John Bolton told his Indian counterpart Ajit Doval on Friday that America supports India’s right to self-defence after the two officials discussed the Pulwama terror attack in which over 40 security personnel were killed.

Bolton telephoned Doval on Friday morning to express his condolences for the terror attack in Jammu and Kashmir and offered the US’ full support to India in confronting terrorism.

“I told Ajit Doval today that we support India’s right to self-defence. I have spoken to him twice, including this morning… and expressed US’ condolences over the terrorist attack,” he told PTI.

Bolton said the US has been very clear to Pakistan on ending support to terrorist safe havens.

“We have been very clear on that score… And, we are continuing to be in discussions we are going to have with the Pakistanis,” he said.

Earlier, the White House and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo asked Pakistan to end its support to terrorist safe havens inside the country.

“We stand with #India as it confronts terrorism. Pakistan must not provide safe haven for terrorists to threaten international security,” Pompeo said on Twitter.

In a stern message to Pakistan, the White House asked Islamabad to “immediately end” its “support” to all terror groups and not to provide “safe haven” to them, as the US condemned the brutal Pulwama terror attack claimed the lives of at least 40 CRPF soldiers.

Pakistan-based Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) has claimed responsibility for the terror attack in Jammu and Kashmir’s Pulwama district on Thursday that left at least 40 CRPF soldiers dead and five others critically wounded.

“The United States calls on Pakistan to end immediately the support and safe haven provided to all terrorist groups operating on its soil, whose only goal is to sow chaos, violence, and terror in the region,” White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said in a late night statement on Thursday.

Sane told authorities, he got his HIV+ diagnosis in 2008 and has been taking treatment since that time.




Manoj Sane, the suspect in the grisly murder reported in Mira Road, Mumbai, has told police that he never had physical contact with the victim, 32-year-old Saraswati Vaidya, his live-in girlfriend, since he has tested positive for HIV.

Reports said Sane said she was like a daughter to him and he taught her maths. Sane is charged with killing Vaidya, chopping her body, and disposing of the pieces after boiling them in a pressure cooker. Despite knowing each other since 2014, they have been living together in the Mira Road flat for the past three years.

Sane told the authorities that he first met Saraswati 16 years ago when he was working at a ration store. He said he got his HIV+ diagnosis in 2008 and has been taking treatment since then. He claimed to have been in an accident and to have undergone extensive medical treatment. Sane told the authorities that he believed he was infected with HIV while receiving treatment for that accident.

According to Sane, Vaidya was very possessive of him but he used to treat her like his daughter. He also claimed that he’d teach Saraswati maths on a board which the police found on one of the walls of the flat where the couple resided, as the 32-year-old was preparing to appear for Class 10 SSC examinations.

Saraswati Vaidya, the victim, was identified as an orphan by the police on Thursday. However, three of her sisters came to the Naya Nagar Police station on Friday to record their statements.

Although Saraswati Vaidya and Manoj Sane were identified by their neighbours as a live-in couple, Vaidya had told them that she was staying with her uncle. Sane also told the same to them. According to a staffer at the orphanage where she was raised, she told them also that she is staying with her uncle.
