New Delhi: In a statement that could embarrass Pakistan, which has claimed that India is fuelling unrest in Balochistan, a Baloch Senator has said there is no proof that New Delhi is fomenting trouble there.

“We don’t have a proof. As a representative of Baloch people and a leader of a National Party, I have no information on this. Maybe, intelligence agencies of India and Pakistan have knowledge about it,” said Senator Mir Hasil Bizenjo on Tuesday. Asking India to realise the threat posed by terrorism in its neighbourhood, the Senator said terror emanating from Afghanistan reached Pakistan in no time and New Delhi should keep this fact in mind. The war “fought in Afghanistan [in 1980’s] did not bother Pakistanis. But ultimately Peshawar or Frontier bore the brunt.” “If, India and Iran along with Afghanistan and Pakistan do not devise a strategy then it has every potential to reach these countries,” he said. — PTI
