New Delhi/Islamabad, Dec 27: The growing tensions between India and Pakistan might trigger a war at any time. On Friday, Dec 26, India warned its citizens not to travel to Pakistan. This warning came in the wake of Prime Minister meeting military chiefs and Pakistan moving its troops to border.

The tensions between the two countries was created after the Mumbai attacks of Nov 26 that killed 179 people.

Afterwhich, several media reports followed stating that four Indian nationals had been arrested in the last two days after bombings in the Pakistani cities of Lahore and Multan. "Indian citizens are therefore advised that it would be unsafe for them to travel (to) or be in Pakistan," India's Foreign Ministry spokesman said in a statement.

Sources in the Prime Minister Manmohan Singh's office earlier said Singh along with India's National Security Adviser M K Narayanan had discussed tension with Pakistan during a scheduled meeting about military pay with the chiefs of the army, navy and air force. "The Prime Minister met the tri-services chiefs to discuss the pay commission issues but obviously the situation in the region was also discussed," said an official.

Many analysts say it is very unlikely that the tension will descend into war.
