India’s Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) has rejected accusations made by Pakistan’s Foreign Secretary, Muhammad Syrus Sajjad Qazi, that Indian agents were involved in the killings of two terrorists in Pakistan last year.

Qazi claimed during a press conference that there was “credible evidence” linking Indian agents to the deaths of the two individuals, who were members of the banned militant groups Jaish-e-Mohammed and Lashkar-e-Taiba. He further alleged that India carried out “extra-territorial and extra-judicial killings” inside Pakistan.

In response, MEA spokesperson Randhir Jaiswal described the accusations as “false and malicious anti-India propaganda” and asserted that Pakistan itself has long been a “centre of terrorism and illegal activities.” Jaiswal added that blaming others for internal issues “can neither be a justification nor a solution.”

Both sides maintain their respective positions, and the matter is likely to remain a point of contention between the two countries.
