New Delhi: As clouds darkened over the National Security Advisor (NSA) level talks with Pakistan over the Kashmiri separitists issue, Separitist leader Shabir Shah was detained by the Delhi police personnel as soon as he landed up in an Indigo flight at Delhi Airport with India clearly taking a strong stand against the meeting of the separatist leaders with the Pakistani NSA. 

External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj has called for a Press Conference on Saturday at around 4 PM on Saturday whereas on the other hand Pakistan NSA Sartaj Aziz has also called for a press conference at around 1 pm before he leaves for India to attend the NSA level talks.

NSA Ajit Doval and his Pakistani counterpart Sartaj Aziz are scheduled to hold meetings on Sunday and Monday while India has reacted strongly to the meeting between the Pakistan NSA and the separatist leaders of the Hurriyat Conference to which Pakistan said that it would not depart from the past practice of interacting with the separatist leaders.
