Rebutting Imran Khan's statement, government sources responded saying, 'What more proof does Imran need?'
On Tuesday afternoon, Pakistan Prime Minister brazenly asked for evidence pertaining to the involvement of his country in the ghastly Pulwama terror attack that martyred 40 jawans.
He said, "You will keep on blaming Pakistan on every attack that takes place on Kashmir soil. I assure you that this is Naya Pakistan, we want stability. I offer complete support to any probe in the incident, I am ready. If you have any evidence that ISI is involved then I will take actions. Whenever we initiate peace-talks with Pakistan, first statement that India issues is to curb terrorism in the country. We are ready to talk about terrorism as well. Pakistan is that country that has suffered the most due to terrorism. I want to tell India this is the time for introspecting, you have to think why this is happening in Kashmir."
JeM claimed responsibility
This act of denying to complicity comes even after Masood Azhar's Jaish-e-Mohammed, a UN-designated, Pakistan backed terror organisation has claimed responsibility by
releasing two videos.
Security forces confirm ISI and Pakistan military's backing to JeM
Moreover earlier on Tuesday in a joint press briefing in the presence of IG Kashmir S P Pani and IG CRPF Zulfiqar Hasan on Tuesday, Corps Commander Lt Gen K J S Dhillon of the Chinar Corps said that the Pulwama terror attack was masterminded by Jaish-e-Mohammed which was backed by Pakistan Army and its secret service agency ISI.
He said, "The complete attack on the convoy was masterminded by Pakistan, ISI and the JeM from across the border."
"JeM is the son of Pak Army. It was being controlled by Pakistan Army and ISI. So, Pakistan Army is definitely involved in the incident and there is no doubt in that. The complete (Pulwama) attack was masterminded by Pakistan, ISI and JeM," Lt. General KJS Dhillon said.
