ISLAMABAD – The banned militant outfit with its roots in Indian Occupied Kashmir (IOK), Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) denied allegations of Afghan President Hamid Karzai of attacking Indian consulate in Afghanistan.
According to the reports of an international news agency – AFP – the spokesperson of LeT called the office from IOK and denied allegations on Tuesday.
“Hamid Karzai’s claim is not based on truth. We condemn the attack,” a man identifying himself as LeT spokesperson Abdullah Ghaznavi said in a call to AFP’s office in Indian Occupied Kashmir.
“Our operations are limited to Jammu and Kashmir alone, and these will continue until the dawn of freedom for the territory,” he said from an undisclosed location.
The caller spoke in Urdu and rang from an unrecognized number. LeT have called AFP to issue denials of their involvement in attacks in the past.
LeT has been active in Indian Kashmir since the early 1990s and the group has carried out some of the most spectacular attacks against Indian forces in the disputed region.
on May 23, the Indian consulate in Herat was attacked by armed men and kept the security officials on toes for many hours.
