On national television today in Pakistan, Saeed, the leader of terrorist organisation Lashkar-e-Taiba, blamed India for Tuesday's massacre of children at a Pakistani school – which the Pakistani Taliban has taken credit for – and vowed revenge.

Saeed was involved in the Mumbai 26/11 terror attacks, and according to NDTV, not even one Pakistani politician has condemned his statements.

Several Indians have voiced support for their neighbouring country during the terror attack, including prime minister Narendra Modi.

NDTV also reported that Indian national security adviser Ajit Doval met the Pakistani envoy in Delhi today and pledged that "India is behind the people and government of Pakistan"; he said that Delhi will "do everything possible to help Pakistan counter the menace of terrorism".

Modi called Pakistan prime minister Nawaz Sharif to share his condolences, and described the Peshawar attack as a tragedy that has "shaken the conscience of the world".

According to Yahoo India, an intelligence report has revealed that Saeed is planning attacks in New Delhi as retaliation for the Peshawar attacks, for which he blames India.

Although many details were not revealed by the intelligence report, there was mention of two hotel lobbies in Delhi, as well as an unspecified highway between Delhi and Agra.
