Publication Date : 28-06-2012
Senior Adviser to the Pakistan Prime Minister on Interior Rehman Malik yesterday said that baseless allegations are denting the bilateral ties of Pakistan and India, DawnNews reported.
Saying that three Indian citizens were involved in the Mumbai attacks, Malik termed India’s information related to Sayed Zabiuddin as incomplete, the TV channel reported.
Rehman’s Remarks came after India’s home minister said that a key suspect in the 2008 Mumbai attacks had provided information confirming Pakistani “state support” for the deadly assault.
He further said “India’s speculative allegations against Pakistan have been proven incorrect on several occasions.”
He was speaking to the media representatives following release of 315 Indian fishermen, including 14 teenagers, who were held in prisons for violating territorial waters.
Rehman Malik said “most of the time India puts blame on the Inter Service Intelligence (ISI) without even investigating into the matter.”
Talking on the release of the Indian fisherment, he said the fishermen were released on the principle of reconciliation.
Indian spy Surjeet Singh has completed his sentence and will be released within 48 hours.
He reiterated that Surjeet and Sarabjeet were two different Indian prisoners.
Summary pertaining to the case of Sarabjeet Singh has not been sent to President Zardari yet, the PM’s adviser added.
