Pakistan summons Afghan diplomat over university attack

Pakistan summons Afghan diplomat over university attack

Jan 27, 2016 - 10:03

PESHAWAR (Pajhwok): Pakistaninfo-icon has lodged a protest with Afghan Charge d’Affaires Syed Abdul Nasir Yousafi over allegations that the attack on Bacha Khan University (BKU) was planned and directed from neighbouring country.

Yousafi was summoned to the Foreign Office (FO) in Islamabad on Monday and conveyed Pakistan’s concern regarding the use of Afghanistaninfo-icon’s soil by certain terrorist elements in the terrorist attack on Jan 20.

In a statement on Tuesday, the foreign ministry said the relevant details had already been shared with the Afghan side. Yousafi was told investigations had established that the mastermind, planners and handlers had used Afghan soil and telecommunication network.

A demarche delivered to the diplomat urged the Afghan government to take action against the perpetrators of the terrorist act and extend cooperation to Pakistani authorities to bring them to justice at the earliest possible.

At least 21 people were killed and more than 30 others wounded last week when unidentified gunmen stormed the university in Charsadda and opened fire on students and faculty members.
