Karachi: Pakistan on Tuesday summoned Afghanistan’s envoy Syed Abdul Nasir Yousafi at the Foreign Office, to protest against the use of Afghan soil by Bacha Khan University attackers.
“He [the Afghan Charge d’Affaires] was told investigations have revealed that handlers of the terrorist act were operating from Afghan territory and used Afghan telecommunication network for planning and executing this attack,” said a statement issued by the Foreign Office.
The Afghan government was urged to take action against the perpetrators of the act of terrorism, and to extend cooperation to Pakistani authorities to bring them to justice, the statement added.
On January 20, terrorists armed with ammunition and bombs targeted Bacha Khan University in Charsadda killing at least 22 people.
Pakistan Army has said that the attack was controlled by Taliban commanders in Afghanistan.
However, Afghan authorities have reportedly rejected Pakistan’s statements. (ANI)
