A representative official from the home department has said that Pakistan’s internal ministry claims of India having sent 400 Muslim youths to Afghanistan, in order to have them trained to carry out the said attacks. The ministry has further issued directives for ‘foolproof’ security measures along the CPEC Project route including the bridges at Karakoram Highway and other crucial points. The Gilgit-Baltistan government has increased security at over twenty-four bridges on the Karakoram Highway between Khunjerab Pass and Diamer district. The movements of all foreigners in the region would be monitored while their documents will be thoroughly verified by the police officials.
