Attack on Musharraf: India, Pakistan deny sharing information
By Iftikhar Gilani
NEW DELHI: Pakistan and India on Wednesday called “baseless” the media reports that a tip-off by Indian intelligence agency Research and Analysis Wing (RAW) helped Pakistan’s Inter Service Intelligence (ISI) foil an attempt on President Pervez Musharraf’s life. “It is a malicious and incorrect report. There is no collaboration of any kind between RAW and the ISI”, Foreign Office Spokesman Masood Khan said. The Indian government had a similar comment for the Times of India report. “The government’s attention has been drawn to press reports which appeared today, describing alleged communications between RAW and the ISI. These reports are baseless,” the Indian External Affairs Ministry said in a statement. The Times of India report claimed that collaboration between RAW and ISI had led to a change in the president’s mindset.
