Pak rejects allegations of involvement


Staff Reporter

Rawalpindi—Pakistan have rejected baseless Indian allegations and asked for credible information from India after gunmen raided Indian army base in Indian Occupied Kashmir.
Pakistan and India’s Director General of Military Operations contacted over a hotline after attack on an army base in Uri. The contact was established on India’s request on Sunday in the backdrop of armed attack on base where 17 soldiers were killed, a statement from the Inter-Service Public Relations said.
The DGMOs discussed the latest situation along the Line of Control.
Refuting unfounded and premature Indian allegation Pakistani DGMO asked his counterpart to share any actionable intelligence.
He reiterated that no infiltration is allowed from Pakistani soil because water tight arrangements were in place on both sides of LOC Working Boundary all along.
Meanwhile, Foreign Office on Sunday rejected Indian allegations regarding involvement in terrorist attack on brigade headquarters in Uri area.
Foreign Office spokesperson Nafees Zakaria told media, “Pointing fingers at Pakistan has become a traditional tendency of India after each terrorist attack.”
“In the past many Indians were involved in the terrorist acts for which India had blamed Pakistan,” he asserted.
Commenting on India’s Home Minister Rajnath Singh’s statement declaring Pakistan a terrorist state, Zakaria said “India is trying to divert world’s attention from the human rights violations being committed in occupied Kashmir”.
“The whole world is looking at the Indian atrocities in India-held Kashmir and UN Human Rights Commissioner has also offered to send fact finding mission to Kashmir which India has rejected,” the spokesperson added.
Zakaria said India cannot hide the crimes being committed in occupied Kashmir. Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif is going to strongly highlight the Kashmir issue in the UN General Assembly, he added.
Soon after Indian home minister Rajnath Singh pointed a finger at Pakistan for its “continued and direct support” to terror groups, Pakistan’s Foreign Office spokesman Nafees Zakaria dismissed the accusation.
“India immediately puts blame on Pakistan without doing any investigation. We reject this,” Zakaria said. “We condemn terrorist actions in all forms,” said the official.
