Pakistan says it has proof of Indian meddling


The Pakistani military says it has discovered substantial evidence of Indian involvement in assisting pro-Taliban militants in the Khyber tribal region.

Khyber Agency area military commander Brigadier Fayyaz told reporters in Barra that they have found Indian-manufactured weapons and sophisticated ammunition, as well as some literature, during the ongoing offensive against the militants in Khyber Agency, a Press TV correspondent reported late on Monday.

“We have sent all the proofs of Indian involvement to the Foreign Office for their onward presentation at the appropriate forum,” he said.

The security forces have killed at least 61 militants so far and arrested some 87 others during the ongoing search operation, he added.

Pakistani Foreign Ministry spokesman Abdul Basit told Press TV that the evidence acquired by security forces in Waziristan and the Khyber tribal region is being examined and the issue will be discussed at a high-level meeting in the next few days.
