Accusing India of being involved in the many terror attacks that have plagued Pakistan for several years, Defence Minister Khawaja M Asif has claimed that the deadly terror strike on an Army base in Uri, Jammu and Kashmir was “self-generated” by India.

“India has been involved for several years in the many attacks that have taken place in Pakistan. And I firmly believe that the entire Uri incident is self generated by India,” Asif said in an interview to Samaa TV channel.

Displaying a list of proofs nailing Pakistan’s involvement in the recent terror attack, Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) official spokesperson Vikas Swarup emphasised that a number of items that include:

1. GPS from the bodies of terrorists with coordinates that indicate the point and time of infiltration across the LoC and the subsequent route to the terror attack site.

2. Grenades with Pakistani markings.

3. Communication matrix sheets

4. Communication equipment

5. Other stores made in Pakistan, including food, medicines and clothes.

Calling on the Pakistan government to take active involvement into the investigation of the attacks, the MEA spokesperson said that if Islamabad wishes to investigate cross border attacks, India is ready to provide fingerprints and DNA samples of those terrorists killed in the Uri and Poonch incidents.
