India Trained Quetta Terrorists: Pak Intelligence

Pakistani intelligence agencies investigating the terror attack on a mosque in Quetta which claimed 53 lives suspect a “possible Indo-Afghanistan nexus with some local elements to destabilise major development projects in Balochistan,” a Pakistani newspaper has reported. The Daily Times, quoting intelligence sources, reported on Tuesday that Pakistan’s “Intelligence Bureau reported two weeks before the Quetta attack that India’s Research and Analysis Wing (RAW) was training a group of 250 Afghan nationals in the Jilga area near the Pak-Afghan border. Later, the training camp was shifted to Spin Boldak and the trainees were merged with the Afghan force deployed at various border check posts”. The newspaper quoted the sources as saying that “considering the proximity of India’s consulates in Afghanistan and the possibility of an Indo-Afghan nexus in Balochistan, similar terrorist actions in the NWFP in view of the proximity of India’s consulate at Jalalabad to the province, were possible”. Apart from India, Pakistani intelligence agencies also suspect the possible involvement of Iran “since the victims in recent terrorist attacks in the province are from the predominantly Shia Hazara community,” the report stated.
