PM says ‘no doubt’ that India was behind stock exchange attack.
Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan told parliament on Tuesday he had no doubt that India was behind an attack on the stock exchange building in the southern city of Karachi.
Four gunmen armed with grenades attacked the Pakistan Stock Exchange on Monday, killing two guards and a policeman before security forces killed the attackers.
“There is no doubt that India is behind the attack,” Khan said in his address to parliament – a charge that India had denied a day earlier.
Following Monday’s attack, Pakistani authorities vowed to strike back against any group found responsible, promising to dismantle their networks and destroy their bases.
“An investigation has been launched and very soon we will reach their masterminds,” Interior Minister Ijaz Ahmad Shah said in a video message.
The gunmen never made it into the stock exchange and business continued as usual after the attack.
