India may be behind Swat unrest: NWFP CMNovember 14th, 2007 - 2:58 am ICT by admin
“The involvement of foreign militants in the prevailing situation in Swat can’t be ruled out. India or Afghanistan may be behind such elements,” Mulk told a press conference.
The military operation in the valley had been launched on the demand of the locals, the Daily Times quoted him, as saying.
Earlier, PPP Information Secretary Sherry Rehman said that the Swat Valley has been under an intense grip of violence for the past many months in the face of weakening writ of the state and growing influence of Maulana Fazlullah.
Meanwhile, the gunbattle between the security forces and militants continued in the Valley on Saturday after firing between the personnel of security forces and militants resumed at Kabal on Kanju Road.
However, no human causalities and property loss has been reported so far. (ANI)
