Lahore, Feb 25: Just as the Foreign Secretary level talk would bring an end to the blame game between India and Pakistan, Pakistan on Thursday, Feb 24, came out with the statement that 'Indian networks' were behind the terror attacks in Mumbai and on the Samjhauta Express and Indian Parliament.
Pakistan Interior Minister Rehman Malik said that the attacks on India soil could not be carried out without any help from the local network.
"I had said very openly during a press conference that such a major terrorist incident like the Mumbai attacks could not have happened without the involvement of an Indian network," he told reporters after appearing in the Lahore High Court in connection with the hearing of a case.
"There was (an Indian) network when the Samjhauta Express was (attacked in 2007)... There was also (an Indian) network involved in the attack on Indian Parliament (in 2001).These are three networks that have been identified as existing in India," he claimed without giving further details.
Malik said that Home Minister P Chidambaram's comment about Abu Jindal, a suspected Indian handler of the Mumbai attacks, has substantiate his point.
"Time proved me right when Chidambaram said that Abu Jindal was involved. That means there is a network," he said.
