Pak military’s involvement in Mazar-i-Sharif attack bolsters India’s assertion: Congress

, 12:24 PM IST

New Delhi: The Congress Party on Wednesday launched a full-fledged attack on Islamabad after Afghanistan Police confirmed that Pakistan Army officers were behind the January 3 attack on the Indian consulate in Mazar-i-Sharif and said this has only bolstered India’s assertion.

“It was certain that there is involvement of Pakistani military in the attack on the Indian Consulate in Afghanistan. The confirmation from the Afghanistan Police has only bolstered our assertion that the Pakistani military is also involved in the terrorist activities taking place in India as well as abroad,” Congress leader Pramod Tiwari told ANI.

“India should not only protest but also put forward its assertion strongly so that Pakistan can learn a lesson from it and such incidents do not occur in future again,” he added.

Echoing similar views, Congress leader P.L. Punia said that the Foreign Secretary-level talks between India and Pakistan should not take place in such an atmosphere.

“The attack on Mazar-i-Sharif was done by Pakistan military as per the Afghan Police. It is very unfortunate. If such is the case, where is Indo-Pak relation heading to?” Punia told ANI. (ANI)
