Pakistan denies India's allegations on its involvement in Pulwama attack
Islamabad, Feb 17: Pakistan on Sunday denied India's allegations that it had a hand in the February 14 attack on a convoy of Indian soldiers in Jammu and Kashmir's Pulwama district that killed 40 people.

Pakistan had said India's allegations were "made within a short time from the attack and without carrying out any investigations".


"These knee-jerk and preconceived accusations were nevertheless consistent with well-rehearsed tactics from the Indian playbook after such incidents in the past," Dawn quoted a government statement as saying.


"Dichotomy in Indian position is evident while it accepts the unverified social media content about JeM claims of responsibility and video of the attacker as 'gold standard', it goes into denial mode when confronted with voluntary confessions and acceptance of responsibility by its serving Naval commander Jadhav for perpetrating terrorist violence in Pakistan," tweeted Mohammad Faisal, Pakistan's foreign office spokesperson.


"Bluster, belligerence and pursuit of expedient standards to suit internal political interests is both delusional and counterproductive. India must come out of the denial mode, end state repression against Kashmiri youth, address widespread alienation In IOK and pursue the path of dialogue," the statement added.


Pakistan already spoken to envoys from the European Union and non-permanent members of the UN Security Council to state Islamabad's stand in this issue.
