At the same time, the Pakistan foreign office on Wednesday stated that Pakistan is prepared to hold investigations through the UN Observer Group for India and Pakistan, which has offices on both sides of the line of control. The statement came after foreign minister Hina Rabbani Khar told reporters in Islamabad that her country "does not believe in tit-for-tat killings".
The feeling in Pakistan is that given the nature of the attacks, there is a possibility that militants were involved.
Talat Masood, a former army officer and military analyst, said, "It is still unclear why this was done. Was it the action of one person or a group of people, and was it part of a larger strategy?"
