Talking tough, Afghanistan has alleged Pakistan had advance knowledge of the plot to assassinate former President Burhanuddin Rabbani and said Islamabad was refusing to cooperate in investigations of the crime.
Afghan officials have also said that they have handed over satellite images of houses of top leaders of the Taliban in the capital of Balochistan, Quetta, but Pakistani security forces were not taking action against them, New York Times reported.
“If Pakistan does not help in investigations, Afghanistan will appeal to the UN to get involved,” the Times reported, quoting a senior Afghan official who goes by the single name Dr Zia.
The Afghan official said that the sophistication of the bomb pointed to a link with Pakistan. He also said that video report of the confession of the suspected mastermind Hamidullah Akhundzadeh was also handed over to Pakistani authorities, who had dismissed it offhand.
Zia alleged that Pakistani military intelligence knew about the plot.
