CID RAW report leak to Pak media, a ploy to drag India into Lahore attack

March 4th, 2009 - 7:32 pm ICT by ANI  

New Delhi, Mar.4 (ANI): The Pakistan Government was warned about a possible attack on the Sri Lankan cricket team by the Crime Investigation Department (CID), Punjab, recently.
The Punjab CID had also tabled a secret report saying that the Indian intelligence agency-RAW (Research and Analysis Wing) was chalking out plans to attack the Lankan to malign Pakistans image on the international stage.
The report tagged “SECRET/IMMEDIATE” with subject “SOURCE REPORT” said : “It has reliably been learnt that RAW (Indian intelligence agency) has assigned its agents the task to target Sri Lankan cricket team during its current visit to Lahore, especially while travelling between the hotel and stadium or at hotel during their stay.
This secret report has now surfaced in Pakistani media.
But the million dollar question here is that if Islamabad had so specific knowledge about the threat to the visiting Lankans, then why it didnt act.
Moreover, the Pakistani authorities had promised unprecedented security arrangements for the visitors during the series.
So, the sudden appearance of the Pak CID report charging the Indian intelligence agency, RAW for plotting the Lahore attack, has some stinking factor behind it.
It seems that Pakistan, in a deliberate effort to divert the international attention from its own failure, has put forward the propaganda of attacking India and trickled the CID report to the media.
Putting India to blame had started even before the dust of the Lahore terror attack had settled with a PPP leader, within minutes of the attack, saying: This is clearly the work of a foreign hand.
No surprise that the recent leaking of the top secret intelligence report is just another ploy to drag India into the issue. (ANI)
