Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday made a decision to suspend Indus Water Commission talks until "Pakistan-sponsored terror" in India ends, according to Indian media reports.
Pakistan's meeting with World Bank took place amid reports that India could revoke the 56-year-old Indus Water Treaty.
However, on Tuesday, India handed over evidence to the Pakistani envoy, saying it has proof of the neighbouring country's involvement in the terrorist attack in Uri that claimed the lives of 18 soldiers on September 18.
This is the first time India has pulled out of the SAARC summit, giving the strongest diplomatic blow to Pakistan amid the peaking tension between the two countries since the Uri attack.

Pakistan sees such a violation as an "act of war", the country's top foreign official said. "Blood and water can't flow together", the PM said at that meeting. This, though, could be catastrophic for farmers, as Pakistan's agricultural economy is nearly totally dependent on water from the Indus Basin rivers. India has said it will respond to the Kashmir attack but experts say it is short of military options because of the risk of escalation.
