Asian Journal - - Asia -

Kabul: Pak­istani mil­i­tary of­fi­cers were be­hind the Jan­uary 3 ter­ror at­tack on the In­dian con­sulate in Afghanistan’s Mazar-e-Sharif, a se­nior Afghan po­lice of­fi­cial said. Sayed Ka­mal Sa­dat, po­lice chief of Afghanistan’s north­ern Balkh prov­ince, said the at­tack­ers, “of­fi­cers from across the bor­der, were well-trained mil­i­tary men who fought Afghan se­cu­rity forces in the 25-hour siege”, Tolo News re­ported. “We saw with our own eyes and I can say 99 per­cent that those at­tack­ers were from Pak­istani mil­i­tary and used spe­cial tac­tics while con­duct­ing their op­er­a­tion,” Sa­dat was quoted as say­ing.
