RAWALPINDI: Afghanistan President Ashraf Ghani called on Chief of Army Staff General Raheel Sharif who strongly condemned the attack on the American University of Afghanistan in Kabul yesterday.

At least 12 people including seven students were killed in the attack before the two gunmen were shot dead after a ten hour long assault.

The Army Chief assured him that they will not allow the Pakistani soil for any act of terrorism on Afghanistan, and his full cooperation based on availability of further information from Afghans.

According to the Inter Services Public Relations (ISPR), the Afghan authorities had shared three mobile phone numbers claimed to be used during the university attack by those who were in contact with the gunmen.

The Pakistan Army carried out a combing operation along an area close to the Pak-Afghan border to verify the claims of the Afghan government about the presence of the miscreants.

However, it was found out the Afghan SIMs used during the attack were from a network of an Afghan cellular company whose signals could also be detected near the border.

ISPR said that that they evaluated the evidence and have shared it with the Afghan government while further technical evaluation of the mobile phone numbers is being carried out.

Afghanistan has alleged that the attack was organised and orchestrated from across the border, and have asked for serious and practical measures against the terrorists organising the attack.

General Raheel Sharif had promised that Pakistan will evaluate the case and brief Afghanistan on the taken measures to track those behind the attack.
