Islamabad, Feb 6(ANI): Criticizing India for its slow probe into the 2007 Samjhota Express blasts, Pakistan has said that its neighbour "seems to be lacking courage" to bring to light the accountability of "Hindu terrorists" in this regard, and also their links with some Indian Army personnel.
A spokesman for Pakistan's Foreign Office made these comments while responding to a question about the progress on the probe into the blasts that killed 68 people, including 42 Pakistani nationals.He said it was "unfortunate" that India had been unable to complete its investigations into the Samjhota Express blasts despite the passage of four years.
"India seems to be lacking courage to unearth culpability of Hindu terrorists and their links with some personnel of the Indian Army," the Dawn quoted the spokesman, as saying.
He said that although four years had passed since the terror incident, "India somewhat conveniently asserts that its investigations are incomplete."
"We do not know how many more years India would need to bring the perpetrators of the Samjhota terrorist act to justice, and provide relief to the families of the victims," he added.
When asked about the way the case was being handled, the spokesman said: "It doesn't inspire much hope," and emphasized that India needs to bridge the gap between what it says and what it does. (ANI)
