Indian government officials have denied a report in the Pakistani daily Dawn that claims Islamabad has handed New Delhi a dossier on “comprehensive” Indian involvement in terrorist activities in that country.
These include subversive activities in Balochistan province and the attack on the Sri Lankan cricket team in Lahore.
The officials, who did not want to be named, said no such dossier has been handed over and doubted its very existence. Some Indian observers said they suspected the story was planted to influence the US special envoy to Afghanistan-Pakistan, Richard Holbrooke, who arrived in Islamabad on Wednesday, the day the report was published.
The report, quoting sources, said Pakistani PM Yousaf Raza Gilani handed over the dossier to PM Manmohan Singh last week at Sharm el Sheikh.
