A Foreign Office statement also rejected Indian allegations about so-called attempts by Pakistan to build up a radical Sikh environment, The Dawn reported.

“Indian officials are in the unfortunate habit of making such unfounded allegations whenever a violent incident occurs in India,” the statement said.

“The timing of these allegations is especially regrettable because these could vitiate the atmosphere on the eve of bilateral talks on confidence-building measures taking place in New Delhi,” it said.

Narayanan in an interview to The Indian Express had said that there was no connection between the blasts in Ludhiana, Ajmer and Mecca Masjid (Hyderabad), other than the fact that the ISI’s involvement is suspected.

Narayanan did not directly blame Pakistan, but said that “very often” such agencies develop their own momentum and are difficult to control.

Narayanan said that there has been a “manifest attempt in Pakistan” to build up a radical Sikh environment in Indian Punjab. (ANI)
