India rubbishes report on Taliban attack on Indians

July 11, 2009 12:18 IST

India today rubbished a Pakistani media report which claimed that six Indians had been killed in a terror attack in Afghanistan.

Sources in the External Affairs Ministry said that no Indian was killed in any attack anywhere in Afghanistan.

"We checked up and found that this report is untrue," a source in the ministry said. Pakistan's Dawn News TV channel had last night claimed that six Indians were among 18 killed in an attack by Taliban in Paktia province of Afghanistan.

On earlier occasions, too, the Pakistani media had issued such reports which India feels are part of malicious campaign to scare away Indians engaged in reconstruction and development works in Afghanistan.
