ISLAMABAD – Amid raising speculations of possibility that weapons used by militants during Karachi airport siege might be made in India, Dr Raghavan condemned the terrorism and maintained that India wants to keep up the bilateral ties.
The Indian High Commissioner Dr Raghavan issued an official communique on Monday in which he strongly condemned the attack on Karachi airport.
The premiers of Pakistan and India met as leaders of friendly nations. We condemned the attack. All sort of terrorism must be condemned, the statement said.
Indian High Commission also maintained that India wants to keep up the good bilateral ties with Pakistan.
Its pertinent to mention here that Pakistani media and some journalists were raising concern over the make of weapons recovered from the airport attackers. Some of them did not rule out the possibility that weapons recovered from the terrorists – AK 47s, RPG Rocket Launchers, Hand grenades and factor VIII injections used to stop bleeding – could be manufactured in India.
However, its also pertinent to mention here that outlawed militants of Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) had accepted the responsibility of the attack. Also, the DG Sindh Rangers Majore General Rizwan Akhter clearly stated in the press conference that all the attacker were ethnic Uzbeks.
