Islamabad, Oct 30: The Pakistan Foreign Office has denied that India had shared any information on the Samjhauta Express blast that took place on February 18 this year. At least 68 people lost their lives and several others were injured when blasts and fire took place in two coaches of the Samjhauta-Attari special train.

Rejecting Pakistan"s involvement in the Ajmer blasts, FO spokesman Muhammad Sadiq said that India has not shared any information on the Samjhota tragedy with Pakistan yet.

Sadiq said the South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (SAARC) Home Minister"s meeting, held in New Delhi on October 25, had decided to set up an electronic network between police authorities of SAARC countries.

He also said that Islamabad would host the third Home Minister"s meeting next year.

Terming a recent Newsweek report stating that Pakistan was more dangerous than Afghanistan and Iran as baseless, he said, “We resent, reject and condemn the article on Pakistan that was published in the October 29 issue of Newsweek. This report is false, misleading and intended to portray a highly negative image of Pakistan," the Daily Times reported.
