India Blames Pakistan for Train Bombings
Posted on Sep 30, 2006
Indian police have accused Pakistan’s intelligence agency of planning the July train bombings in Mumbai, which killed 186 people. According to Mumbai’s police commissioner: “We have solved the 11 July bombings case. The whole attack was planned by Pakistan’s ISI and carried out by Lashkar-e-Toiba and their operatives in India….”
Tariq Azim Khan, Pakistan’s minister of state for information, rejected the allegations.
“India has always chosen this path of pointing fingers at Pakistan without evidence,” he said.
“If they have any evidence, they should provide us evidence and we will carry out our investigations.”
On 11 July 2006, seven co-ordinated blasts within 15 minutes ripped through trains on Mumbai’s busy commuter network.
