New Delhi, Mar 10 (ANI): External Affairs Minister S M Krishna on Wednesday trashed allegations of the Research and Analysis Wing's (RAW) involvement in Monday's Lahore blast, asserting that India had no hand in it.

"It is total falsehood. India has no hand in the Lahore blast," said Krishna.

"This is an unthinkable accusation against India," he added.

India said Islamabad routinely comes up with such 'baseless' charges.

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 people were killed.

Pakistani Interior Minister Rehman Malik had claimed that India was involved in the suicide attack at a building in Lahore.

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)
