Ministry of Foreign Affairs spokesperson Ms Tasnim Aslam on Thursday denied a news report quoting Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif as having said that there were reports of many groups, including Research and Analysis Wing (RAW), being involved in Monday's terror attack on the district court in Islamabad.

In response to a question at the weekly media briefing, Ms Aslam said the report was not correct and denied that the Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif had said any such thing.

The News on Thursday reported on its front page that Mr. Sharif had pointed to the involvement of RAW, among other groups, as a suspect behind the attack. He reportedly made the statement while meeting a group of parliamentarians from Gujranwala on Wednesday.
