Pakistan’s Foreign Office in a statement rejected having hands in the assassination plot on Kandahar police chief Gen. Raziq on Wednesday.
Pakistan rejects Kabul’s “baseless” allegations” regarding a recent attack in Kandahar, in which three top Afghan officials were killed when their own guards opened fire on them.
“I want to say that this conspiracy was plotted in Pakistan. So Pakistan should give us the criminals so that we can bring them to justice,” president Ghani said during a trip to Kandahar.

Meanwhile, Pakistan’s foreign office said: “Pakistan rejects baseless and unfounded allegations regarding the latest Kandahar attacks. No hard evidence or intelligence-related information has been shared to date with Pakistan to substantiate such claims.”

On the other hand, a Taliban spokesman Qari Yousuf Ahmadi who claimed responsibility for the Oct. 18 attack earlier told The Associated Press that US Gen Scott Miller, commander of US and Nato troops in Afghanistan — who had escaped the attack unharmed — was the intended target.
However, Resolute Support Commander Gen. Scott Miller said that I was not the intended target in the attack.
