   “They had made a big plan. They had brought a lot of weapons. Their aim was to enter the Stock Exchange and make them hostage. They had plans to stage a Mumbai- like attack at the Stock Exchange, and to kill innocent people in the same  way. They wanted to create an atmosphere of instability and uncertainty in the country.”

STORY: Pakistan’s Prime Minister Imran Khan on Tuesday  (June 30) told parliament he had ‘no doubt’ that India was behind an attack on the Pakistan Stock Exchange building  a day earlier.

Four gunmen armed with grenades attacked the Pakistan Stock Exchange in the port city of Karachi, killing two guards and a policeman before security forces killed all four of them in an encounter that lasted just 8 minutes.

“We have no doubt that India is behind the attack. For the last two months my cabinet knew (there would be an attack); I had informed my ministers also. All our agencies were on high alert. We have successfully preempted at least four major attacks in the country, with the help of our intelligence agencies.  Two of these  targeted Islamabad,” Khan told the ongoing budget session of Parliament.

Khan said the gunmen had brought lot of weapons, and had planned to carry out a large scale attack like the one that had taken place in Mumbai in 2008.

“They had made a big plan. They had brought a lot of weapons. Their aim was to enter the Stock Exchange and make them hostage. They had plans to stage a Mumbai- like attack at the Stock Exchange, and to kill innocent people in the same  way. They wanted to create an atmosphere of instability and uncertainty in the country,” Khan said.

Hours after the  attack on the Stock Exchange in Karachi on Monday, India had said it had nothing to do with the assault.

The nuclear-armed neighbours, India and Pakistan -- both of who claim Kashmir in full, but control only parts of it -- have fought two wars and a limited conflict over Kashmir since their partition in 1947.
