New Delhi Condemns Bomb At­tack Chaba­har

Iran News - - DOMESTIC -

NEW DELHI - In­dia on Thurs­day strongly con­demned the sui­cide bomb­ing in Iran’s Chaba­har city where it is build­ing a port for ac­cess to Afghanistan and cen­tral Asian coun­tries.

In­dia’s Ex­ter­nal Af­fairs Min­istry spokesman Raveesh Ku­mar said the per­pe­tra­tors of the das­tardly at­tack which took place ear­lier on Thurs­day should be brought to jus­tice ex­pe­di­tiously.

Two peo­ple were killed and 28 in­jured when a sui­cide bomber blew him­self up near the po­lice head­quar­ters in Chaba­har.

The blast took place af­ter the po­lice blocked an ex­plo­sive-laden ve­hi­cle from driv­ing into the head­quar­ters, it added.

“In­dia strongly condemns to­day’s de­spi­ca­ble at­tack in Chaba­har. There can be no jus­ti­fi­ca­tion for any act of ter­ror­ism,” Ku­mar said at a press briefing here.

“We ex­press our con­do­lences to the gov­ern­ment, the peo­ple of Iran and the fam­i­lies of the vic­tims of this at­tack. We wish speedy re­cov­ery to those in­jured,” he added.

In­dia is build­ing a port in Chaba­har which will give it ac­cess to Afghanistan and mark a sig­nif­i­cant step since Pak­istan has been deny­ing it ac­cess by road to Afghanistan.

The port is be­ing de­vel­oped as part of a new trans­porta­tion cor­ri­dor for land-locked Afghanistan and is ex­pected to be func­tional by 2019.
