India could be behind attack on Chinese citizens in Karachi, says interior minister
“Pakistan has established a strong force of 10,000 personnel for protection of Chinese citizens,” the minister told BBC in an interview. Ahasan said Indian spy Kulbhushan Jadhav, who is under arrest on charges of espionage, has also admitted that there is an Indian spy network to sabotage the Corridor.
The two Chinese, employees of a shipping company, were riding in their car in an upmarket area on Monday when the attackers in another car opened fire on their vehicle, according to police, describing it as an apparent “targeted attack”.

On a question regarding allegations of terror safe havens in Pakistan, the minister quoted a statement from Washington that forty-five per cent of Afghan territory is under control of extremists and there is no reason for them to have sanctuaries in Pakistan.
According to the minister, the US administration has hinted that economic aid to Pakistan will not be stopped. He added that different lobbies are working in the US and want to introduce bills in the US Congress of their own choice.
