Pakistan on Thursday accused India of covertly supplying weapons to “militants and terrorists” in its Balochistan province from Afghanistan.

Pakistan has “solid evidence” of India’s alleged involvement in fomenting unrest in Balochistan province and the government is taking up this matter diplomatically with its Indian counterpart, Interior Minister Rehman Malik claimed on Friday.

Malik made the remarks while talking to the media at the parliament.

“We are not levelling mere allegations against India but we have solid evidence of Indian involvement in Balochistan. The weapons recovered from various areas were Indian-made,” he alleged.

Afghanistan’s soil is being used to destabilise Balochistan and President Hamid Karzai, who visited Pakistan this week, has given a commitment that Afghan soil will not be used against Pakistan, he said.

The Indian government has denied allegations by Pakistani leaders that it is behind the unrest in Pakistan.

Replying to a question, Malik said no targeted killings were being carried out in Karachi but there was a “conspiracy to pitch religious groups against each other”.

He warned banned sectarian groups not to mar the peaceful atmosphere of Karachi, saying stern action would be taken against them.
