Pakistan on Saturday termed the Mumbai police finding that ISI masterminded the July 11 train blasts as "baseless and fabricated" and said it was aimed at maligning the country.
"It is totally baseless and fabricated allegations," Interior Minister Aftab Ahmed Khan Sherpao told media in Islamabad while reacting to Mumbai police's claims.
"We totally reject it as it is aimed at maligning Pakistan at a time when leadership of the two countries met in Havana and such baseless allegations are not going to help," he said.
While Pakistan Foreign Office was yet to react, Minister of State for Information Tariq Azam rejected the claim and said India could provide any evidence it has to Pakistan to investigate.
The Mumbai police disclosures came as President Pervez Musharraf returned home on Saturday from an 18-day tour during which he visited Brussels, Havana, the US and UK.
