Pakistan says India trying to exonerate Samjhauta attack suspects

SRINAGAR: Pakistan on Thursday said the Indian government was trying to “exonerate” rightwing persons suspected of involvement in the 2007 Samjhauta Express bombing.
According to media reports, Pakistan stated that the issue had been raised by Islamabad during the foreign secretaries meet last month.
Pakistan’s Foreign Office spokesman, Nafees Zakaria, said at a press briefing in Islamabad that Indian government “is trying to exonerate individuals who, many in India itself believe, were involved in the Samjhauta Express terrorist attack, resulting in the loss of lives of more than 42 innocent Pakistanis”, the reports said.
Zakaria noted that Pakistan foreign secretary Aizaz Chaudhry, during his meeting with his Indian counterpart S Jaishankar in New Delhi last month, had conveyed Pakistan’s concern and urged the Indian government for “fair investigation and trial” of the Samjhauta attackers, it said.
