Stop accusations, present evidence: Pak tells India

Karachi, Aug 6 : Pakistan’s Foreign Office (FO) spokesperson Syed Qazi Khalilullah has said that India should provide evidence of any Pakistani involved in terrorist activity on Indian soil, adding that they have constantly asked India to refrain from accusations.

According to the Dawn, the statement from Pakistan’s foreign office comes following Indian claim that Usman Faisal, a militant captured on Wednesday after a deadly attack on a military convoy in the Kashmir region, was a Pakistani.

Qazi Khalilullah said that the claim by India was baseless.

On Wednesday morning, Usman Khan and Nomen Khan ambushed a BSF convoy in Udhampur, killing two soldiers and injuring eight others. In the ensuing gun battle, Nomen was killed while Usman fled into the dense forests after taking three people hostage.

Usman was later surrounded by a team of BSF and Army soldiers and a brief gun battle followed after which he was captured and taken for interrogation. (ANI)
