SRINAGAR: Pakistan on Sunday “strongly” rejected Indian allegations regarding attack on an army camp in Uri district of Jammu and Kashmir, which left 17 soldiers dead.
Foreign Office Spokesperson Nafees Zakaria said the “Indian allegations against Pakistan are totally baseless and irresponsible,” a PTV report said.
He said Pakistan always sought concrete evidence from India to prove its accusations, but it “failed” to do so.
Four heavily-armed militants said to be “foreigners” sneaked into an army camp near the LoC in what is called the worst attack on a military base in the state in a decade and left 17 soldiers dead and many injured.
Over two dozen soldiers were injured in the audacious pre-dawn attack, which Home Minister Rajnath Singh and Finance Minister Arun Jaitley blamed on Pakistan and called for its isolation.
Zakariya said India has a history of blaming Pakistan immediately after a terror attack, which always proved wrong in investigations.
He also accused India of using different tactics to divert the world attention from the situation in the Kashmir Valley, where over 80 civilians have been killed in clashes between protesters and security forces since July 9.
