The interior minister also said that there are evidences of Indian involvement in several terrorism related incidents inside Pakistan, while the Afghan government is also cooperating with the country over the arrest of Taliban supremo, Mullah Fazlullah.

“The funding of the seminaries is also being monitored”, he added.
He also said that Pakistan has no evidence against Jamaat-ud-Dawa (JuD) chief Hafiz Saeed, adding, we cannot arrest Saeed on “someone else’s dictation”.
