Pakistan summons Indian envoy over Samjhauta blast case acquittals

Pakistan on Wednesday summoned the Indian High Commissioner Ajay Bisaria to lodge a protest against the acquittal of all four accused, including Aseemanand in the 2007 Samjhauta terror attacks that left 68 people, mostly Pakistanis, dead.

Pakistan’s Acting Foreign Secretary, in a statement, said that Pakistan had consistently raised the “lack of progress and the subsequent, concerted attempts by India to exonerate the perpetrators of this heinous terrorist act in which 44 innocent Pakistanis lost their lives”.

The issue was raised repeatedly, including at the sidelines of the ‘Heart of Asia Meeting’ in 2016, the statement said.
