Islamabad: Outgoing Afghan President Hamid Karzai has accused Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) of being behind last week’s terror attack on an Indian diplomatic mission in Afghanistan.

On the eve of talks between India’s new Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his Pakistani counterpart Nawaz Sharif, Karzai blamed the Pakistan-based Kashmiri rebel for the attack in Herat.

According to Dawn News, Karzai said that the incident has been condemned by the Afghan people, as it is condemned by the people of India.

At least two policemen were wounded when the heavily armed attackers stormed a house close to the consulate and opened fire on the building in a pre-dawn assault that was eventually repelled by security forces, the report added.
