Pakistan has failed to prove the alleged “involvement” of India in a case related to the November 2018 attack on the Chinese consulate in Karachi, in which four people were killed.
The Anti-terrorism Court (ATC) Pakistan on May 26 expressed displeasure at the failure of the prosecution to present witnesses against suspected members of the ethnic insurgent group Baloch Liberation Army (BLA) for facilitating the attack on the Chinese consulate in Karachi.
According to the charge sheet registered, the attack was carried out by the BLA in connivance with India’s Research and Analysis Wing to harm the relations between Pakistan and China and disrupt the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor project, reported The News International.
The ATC-VII judge ordered the investigation officer (IO) of the case to ensure presence of the complainant in the courtroom on July 7 since he had not appeared on four last hearings despite being issued summons.
The court had in January charged five people for providing weapons, hideouts, and cash to the perpetrators. Three heavily armed militants had carried out the attack on the Chinese consulate located in Clifton on November 23, 2018.
