India hand in Chinese killing: Pak

Islamabad: Pakistan's interior minister Ahsan Iqbal on Thursday alleged that India could be involved in the targeted killing of a Chinese national in Karachi, according to an interview on BBC.

Iqbal said Pakistan has established a strong force of 10,000 personnel for the protection of Chinese citizens but India, who is apprehensive over the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) projects, may be involved in the killing of the 46-year-old managing director of a shipping firm in Pakistan.

Chinese national Chen Zhu was killed on Monday after being shot in the head by unidentified gunmen in Karachi. Iqbal alleged that Indian death row prisoner Kulbhushan Jadhav had admitted that India's intelligence agency was involved in sabotaging of Chinese projects. PTI
