Kabul attack: Govt was warned about terror strike
Intelligence sources say information was specifically related to an attack on a consulate.

New Delhi: India has “no doubt” that Pakistan’s spy agency the Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) was involved in the bomb attack on its embassy in Kabul, National Security Advisor M K Narayanan said on Saturday.

“We not only suspect but we have a fair amount of intelligence (on Pakistan’s involvement). We have no doubt that the ISI is behind this,” Narayanan told TV channels.

“The ISI needs to be destroyed. We made this point, whenever we have had a chance, to interlocutors across the world. There might have been some tactical restraint for some time (but) obviously that restraint is no longer present,” said Narayanan.

“The people of this country deserve to know the facts rather than being carried away by people who make statements that these are insinuations. There are no insinuations.

“I think we need to pay back in the same coin. We are quite clear in our mind,” he said. Asked who should be paid back, he replied: “Those who are responsible.”

“I don’t think the ISI has ever been a part of the peace process. I think we need to make a distinction between the two.”

Narayanan admitted that the dialogue between the two countries had slowed down but believed talking is better than fighting. “…in some way we haven’t arrived at the decision that we should go for fight-fight so let talk-talk continue for the moment,” he said.

Afghanistan has blamed a “foreign intelligence agency” for the bombing of the embassy—a veiled accusation against the ISI.

Pakistan has firmly rejected the allegations with its Foreign Minister saying he was ”baffled” to hear people alleging that it was responsible for violence in Afghanistan.

As many as 58 people, including four Indians, were killed in the suicide bomber attack on the embassy on Monday.
