New Delhi: A report on Pakistan's role in Kashmir's Pulwama terror attack will be given to an international terror financing watchdog, Financial Action Task Force to blacklist the neighboring country, in Paris FATF meeting starting today, as per officials.

The Indian security agencies are preparing the dossier containing the evidence gathered so far related to the attack carried out by Pakistan-based terror group, Jaish-e-Mohammad and how the outfit is being aided by the country. The details of the terror attacks carried out by the JeM in the past will be mentioned in the document.

In the next meeting of the FATF, India will also press for the blacklisting of Pakistan so that appropriate actions can be taken against the country, another official said.

The FATF meetings will be held in Paris next week.

If the Pakistan will come under FATF blacklist that will mean it is "non-cooperative" in the global fight against money laundering and terrorist financing and it may further lead to downgrading of the country by multilateral lenders like IMF, World Bank, ADB, EU and also a reduction in risk rating by Moodys, S&P and Fitch.

Pakistan, however, has been put on the grey list of the anti-terror finance watchdog in July 2018.

The FATF currently has 35 members and two regional organisations European Commission (EC) and Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC). North Korea and Iran, however, are in the FATF blacklist.

Nearly forty-five CRPF personnel were killed and several injured, on Thursday, in one of the deadliest terror strikes in Jammu and Kashmir where a Jaish-e-Mohammad suicide bomber blew up an explosive-laden vehicle near their convoy of 78 vehicles in Pulwama district.

India, on Friday, had withdrawn ‘Most Favoured Nation’ status accorded to Pakistan after the aftermath.
