The Pakistan Army is holding a high-level meeting today to discuss the "recent misleading media statement" about Mumbai terror attack, top-level official said on Sunday. 

According to sources privy to the development, the “national security” meeting will discuss the “recent NSC, misleading media statement” about the Mumbai terror attack. 

Two days after ousted premier Nawaz Sharif questioned the policy to allow "non-state actors" to cross the border and "kill" people.

Sharif, for the first time, publicly acknowledged in an interview that terror organisations are active in Pakistan and questioned the policy to allow the "non-state actors" to cross the border and "kill" people in Mumbai.

In a tweet on Sunday, Army spokesman Major General Asif Ghafoor said that Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi was suggested to call a meeting of the high-powered National Security Committee (NSC), a platform of top civil and military leadership to discuss key national issues.

"The NSC meeting suggested to Prime Minister to discuss recent misleading media statement regarding Bombay incident. Being held tomorrow morning," said Ghafoor.
