QUETTA: Inspector General (IG) Frontier Corps (FC) Balochistan Major General Obaidullah Khattak on Friday alleged that India was using Afghan territory to carry out terrorist attacks in Balochistan.
Talking to journalists at the FC headquarters in Quetta, Khattak said there was evidence that Afghanistan was being used against Pakistan.
He urged NATO and ISAF forces to control militants using Afghan soil for launching terror attacks in Balochistan.
Meanwhile, Khattak credited FC for maintaining peace in Quetta and said unity was the only way to cope with internal and external threats adding that suggestions were given to the Balochistan government to deweaponise Quetta.
Earlier Chief of Army Staff General Ashfaq Pervaiz Kayani on Thursday had issued a warning to Afghanistan to stop cross-border activities in Pakistan.
Addressing a Pak-Saudi joint military exercise programme in Mangla, Kayani asserted that no such activities would be tolerated and that Pakistan “possesses the capability to respond to any situation”.

Pakistan’s Former President Pervez Musharraf had also charged that arch-rival India seeks to “create an anti-Pakistan Afghanistan” as part of a bid to dominate South Asia politically and economically.
Musharraf said Afghanistan sends its Intelligence Staff, Diplomats and Soldiers to India where they are “indoctrinated against Pakistan,” something he said India must stop and the United States (US) should be concerned about.
“In Afghanistan, there is some kind of a proxy conflict going on between Pakistan and India,” Musharraf told a leadership forum sponsored by the Atlantic media corporation.
“India is trying to create an anti-Pakistan Afghanistan.”
