Islamabad: Days after Ajmer Sharif bombing accused, Swami Aseemanand was acquitted by special NIA court, Pakistan on Thursday blamed India for exonerating people involved in terrorist attack such as of Samjhauta Express.

In an official statement, Pakistan’s Foreign Affairs spokesperson, Mohammed Nafees Zakaria said, “We have noted that over the last few years they had been exonerating people involved in the Samjhauta Express terrorist attack”.

 

A special NIA court on Wednesday had acquitted seven others, including Swami Aseemanand, giving them the benefit of the doubt.

Spokesperson confirmed that “If I recall correctly, in December 2010 Swami Aseemanand made a public confession that he was the mastermind of this attack, along with Abhinav Bharat's head, Colonal Parohit, who was serving army officer”.

In that terrorist attack, mostly Pakistanis were killed and we were given assurance at the highest political level on numerous occasions that India will share investigations on this attack with us, but we didn't hear anything from them, reads the statement.

On October 11, 2007, a powerful bomb went off on the congested premises of the Ajmer Dargah during iftar at around 6.14 pm, killing three people and injuring 15 others.

The spokesperson also, said “We have been pursuing the case of Samjhauta Express with the Indian government and we hope that they will share the findings/investigations collected so far in the case with us and perpetrators will be brought to justice”.
