Islamabad, July 30 (ANI) : Pakistan has reportedly handed over evidence of India's involvement in providing aid to Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) chief Baitullah Mehsud to the United States and NATO.

Sources said during the US Special Envoy to Pakistan and Afghanistan Richard Holbrooke's recent visit to Islamabad, top military and political leaders gave certain ocumented and video tape evidence to him.

They said evidence of New Delhi's involvement in aiding Mehsud were also provided to US commander of International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) in Afghanistan, Lt. General Stanley McChrystal.

Sources said that Pakistan had provided enough evidence to prove 'India's covert links with Baitullah Mehsud and provision of aid to him through Indian consulate in Afghanistan.'

Pakistan's political and military leadership also urged Holbrooke to discuss the issue with India saying Mehsud did not have the resources to counter the military's extensive offensive against him, reports.

Officials also expressed their reservations regarding the continuous US drone strikes in tribal areas inside Pakistan's geographical territory.

According to sources, Islamabad told US in clear terms that it has certain apprehensions regarding the missile strikes targeting Mehsud directly. They said the attack must be halted immediately as it has resulted in more civilian casualties. (ANI)
