Pakistan-based Jaish-e-Mohammad had claimed responsibility for the Pulwama attack.

India on Thursday slammed Pakistan for evading responsibility for the Pulwama attack in which 40 paramilitary personnel were killed in a suicide attack in February last year

“We have shared enough evidence with Pakistan but it continues to evade responsibility,” Ministry of External Affairs spokesperson Anurag Srivastava said during a weekly media briefing on August 27.

Pakistan has rejected the National Investigation Agency filed chargesheet in which it has named Jaish-e-Mohammad chief Maulana Masood Azhar, his brother Abdul Rauf Asghar and others for carrying out attack on a convoy of vehicles carrying CRPF personnel on the Jammu and Kashmir highway in Pulwama on February 14, 2019.

“The chargesheet on Pulwama was filed after investigation of a year-and-half. It has been filed to address act of terrorism and to bring perpetrators of such a heinous crime to justice,” the MEA spokesperson said.

“Jaish-e-Mohammad had claimed responsibility for the Pulwama attack. The organization and its leadership are in Pakistan,” he added, expressing his regret that “Masood Azhar, the first accused in the charge sheet continues to find shelter in Pakistan.”

India had carried out a strike on a JeM terrorist training camp in Pakistan's Balakot area on February 26 last year, in response to the Pulwama attack.

The MEA spokesperson also hit out at Pakistan for not taking any credible action against the perpetrators of the 2008 Mumbai terror attack which had resulted in the killing of 165 people, including 25 foreign nationals.
