Islamabad, Minister for Interior Rana Sanaullah has said that Pakistan had “irrefutable evidence” of the involvement of Indian agency RAW in the blast at Johar Town, Lahore last year.
Rana Sanaullah addressing a news conference along with Counter Terrorism Department (CTD) Additional Inspector General (IG) Punjab, Imran Mehmud, in Islamabad, today, said, that India was not only behind the Johar Town blast, but also found involved in fanning terrorism in Pakistan.
He said, this is a matter of internal security and we are initiating the process to take it up at the international level. He said, the Secretary Foreign Affairs will highlight the issue at different world forums while Minister for Foreign Affairs Bilawal Bhutto Zardari will raise the matter of Indian involvement in terror financing and subversive activities in Pakistan at the United Nations.”
The minister said Pakistanis had given innumerable sacrifices in wiping out terrorism from the country. “Pakistan has been facing terrorism for several decades, and Pakistanis including citizens, personnel of armed forces, police, Rangers and agencies, journalists, and politicians have either lost their lives in this war or became its victims,” he said.
Rana Sanaullah said gatherings at mosques, Imambargahs, important buildings and elsewhere were targeted and India had remained involved in every form of terrorism in Pakistan. He said in an attempt to justify and cover up its brutalities in Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, India hoodwinks international community and perpetrates terrorism in Pakistan.
The minister said the arrest of spy Kulbhushan Yadev and his statement was sufficient to prove that India was involved in every act of terrorism in Pakistan and was adopting different ways for the purpose. He said we have “undeniable evidence” that can establish India and its premier spy agency (Research and Analysis Wing) are involved in different terror incidents.
Rana Sanaullah said that the Foreign Ministry would raise the issue of Indian involvement in terrorism in Pakistan and also expose it before the world.
On the occasion, Additional Inspector General CTD Punjab, Imran Mehmood, briefed the newsmen about the investigation in Johar Town blast in which 3 civilians were killed and 22 including police personnel were injured. He said the investigation has revealed that India has done terror financing worth 8 lac 75 thousand dollars through RAW agents, who were involved in this terror incident. The Additional IG said we have identified this whole network of Indian funded terrorists and their facilitators during investigation of the Johar Town bomb blast.
