Pakistan Reject India’s Charge Sheet on Pulwama Attack; Calls The Claim As ‘Mischievous Attempt’
Pakistan has rejected India’s charge sheet on Pulwama attack, saying it as a ‘mischievous attempt’ to implicate Islamabad for the attack. Pakistan said that India has failed to provide credible evidence in Pulwama attack and the charge sheet is only to serve it’s ‘narrow and domestic political interests.’
On Wednesday Pakistan Foreign office issued a statement saying “categorically rejects the so-called ‘charge sheet’ by India’s National Investigation Agency (NIA), which mischievously attempts to implicate Pakistan in the Pulwama attack in the Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu & Kashmir (IIOJK) last year. The fabrications in the reported ‘charge sheet’ are patently designed to further the BJP’s anti-Pakistan rhetoric and its narrow domestic political interests.”
“At the outset, Pakistan had rejected India’s baseless allegations and expressed readiness to extend cooperation on the basis of any actionable information. India failed to provide any credible evidence for its invective and has instead been using the attack for its malicious propaganda campaign against Pakistan,” read the statement.
“It would be recalled that Indian military aircraft engaged in belligerent action against Pakistan on 26 February 2019. The Indian misadventure was effectively countered by the Pakistan Air Force, which resulted in the downing of two Indian warplanes and the capture of an Indian pilot. Despite India’s provocations, the Indian pilot was released by Pakistan as a peace gesture” statement added further.
While BJP spokesperson GVL Narasimha Rao said that, “Pakistan has been a habitual liar and denied its culpability in all such terror crimes despite clinching evidence. In Pulwama, NIA has presented clinching forensically matched evidence to nail the role of Jaish-e-Mohammad and Pakistan. There will be no takers for Pak’s lies either in India or internationally.”
