Islamabad, Mar.9 (ANI): Continuing their old policy of blaming 'foreign powers' for terror attacks in the country, Pakistani leaders have once again pointed fingers toward involvement of foreign hands in Monday's suicide bombing at the office of the Special Intelligence Agency in Lahore in which at least 11 persons were killed.

Talking to media persons here, Interior Minister Rehman Malik blamed the Taliban for the attack, saying the banned extremist outfit was working as 'mercenaries' in Pakistan.

"Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) has been involved in all terror attacks in the country... they are hired killers and want to destabilise Pakistan," Malik said.

Punjab Law Minister Rana Sanaullah went a step ahead and directly blamed India's external intelligence agency, the Research and Analysis Wing (RAW) for the suicide attack.

Sanaullah also pointed fingers towards Israel, and other countries.

"India's Research and Analysis Wing was involved in Monday's suspected suicide car bomb attack on a special investigation unit. Besides other neighbouring countries, India's RAW is also involved. Israel and other countries could also be involved," The Nation quoted Sanaullah, as saying. (ANI)
