Islamabad: In an absurd attack, Pakistan on Thursday accused India of orchestrating the ghastly Peshawar school massacre which claimed the lives of 145, including 132 schoolkids.
According to reports, Pakistan is preparing a dossier on India’s role in supporting terrorism in Balochistan and Karachi. The dossier will likely be carried by Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s adviser on foreign affairs Sartaj Aziz when he is expected to meet Ajit Doval in Delhi next month. Sources said, both the nations are expected to take up Samjhauta train blast trial as well.
“Pakistan is likely to up the ante and raise issues that help them address their domestic constituency,” an Indian official involved with the preparations of the meeting said. On July 13, Aziz held a press conference in Islamabad where he referred to alleged Indian interference while sources in the Pakistani establishment also said that the dossier with “solid evidence” has already been shared with some other countries.
“We would take up the alleged help being extended by India to Baloch rebels and in training those involved in recent blasts in Karachi, a Pakistani official said. On July 10 in Russian city of Ufa, Prime Ministers Narendra Modi and Nawaz Sharif held bilateral talks and issued brief joint statement that said the two countries agreed to cooperate with each other to eliminate terrorism, expedite the trial of the 26/11 Mumbai attacks and hold a meeting of their National Security Advisors – among other steps to lessen tension.
Recently, Pakistan said an “Indian spy drone” was shot down by the army along the Line of Control in Pakistan-administered Kashmir. India denied the claim, saying no such drone crashed or was shot down.
