May 28th, 2009 - 12:33 pm ICT by ANI  

Lahore, May 28 (ANI): After every brazen terror strike in Pakistan, two claims are almost certain to follow. First, that the intelligence agencies had prior information about the attack, and second, involvement of ‘foreign hand’ namely India.

Wednesday’s suicide attack in Lahore, targeted the ISI building, in which over 30 persons, including a dozen security personnel were killed was no different in this regard.

According to The Daily Times, the Home Department was ‘informed on Monday or Tuesday’ that a terrorist strike could be carried out in the provincial capital.

A top Home Department official said that intelligence agencies had also informed that an explosives-laden vehicle might be used to target a government building or a prominent personality.

Meanwhile, Punjab Law Minister Rana Sanaullah has said that Indian involvement in the suicide attack could not be ruled out.

Sanaullah said the concerned authorities were investigating the matter thoroughly to trace the mastermind. (ANI)
