Pathankot, Mazar-i-Sharif attacks coordinated by ISI: R.K Singh

New Delhi : Former home secretary and BJP MP R.K. Singh on Wednesday said the Afghan Police confirmation about the involvement of Pakistan military in January 3 attack on the Indian Consulate only support the argument that the Pathankot and Mazar-i-Sharif attacks were coordinated by the ISI.

“At the time of attack on the Pathankot air base, I had said that this attack and the attack on the Indian Consulate in Afghanistan are coordinated. There is no doubt that there was involvement of Pakistan’s ISI in the attack. Now this argument has been supported by the Afghan Police,” Singh told ANI.

“The attack near the Pakistan Consulate in Afghanistan is a lesson to Islamabad that if you will nurture terrorism, it will harm you as well,” he added.

He also said Pakistan’s denial that the telephone numbers provided by India were not registered there was completely false.

“Pakistan will keep on saying that they need more evidence just like they did after 26/11. However, their strategy is not going to work this time around. The planning of the Pathankot attack was made in Pakistan. The terrorists were trained in Pakistan and had come from there only. India should only provide them with the fingerprints to establish identity of the militants,” he said.

Reports have emerged that Pakistan has rejected the evidence provided by India in the Pathankot attack and also denied the credibility of the proofs.

Seven military personnel were martyred and another 20 injured when six terrorists crossed the border and launched a massive attack on the Pathankot Air Force base in the early hours of January 2. (ANI)
