Islamabad, Nov 9 (ANI): Former President Pervez Musharraf has said that Indian influence can be seen at work in the Afghan intelligence network, which routinely blames Pakistan for harbouring Afghan Taliban, who are actually based in and operate from Afghanistan.

"We have concrete evidence of Indian involvement," he said in an interview with CNN's Fareed Zakaria on his GPS news programme.

Reacting to a question from Zakaria about the activities of the so-called Quetta Shura and the presence of Mulla Omar in that city, Musharraf said: "I have given documentary evidence of Indian role in Afghanistan from top to bottom here.

As regards Mullah Omar, Musharraf said he was certainly not in Quetta, considering the huge security presence in Balochitan. "This is absoultely ... 2,000 percent wrong."

As Musharraf came down hard on India, Zakaria quickly changed the topic and posed a question about the cases instituted against him and whether he would face trial.

Musharraf gave a standard reply that his decision was legal and in line with the Constitution, and that he would ultimately return to Pakistan.

He expressed his regret over his decision to dismiss Supreme Court judges.

Stating that sometimes even a democratic decision has adverse effects, Musharraf said, "I regret that decision because Pakistan is suffering." (ANI)
