(Ahlul Bayt News Agency) - An Afghan government commission has accused Pakistan's Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) of masterminding the recent assassination of former Afghan President Burhanuddin Rabbani.
A commission spokesman and deputy chief of the Afghan intelligence service also alleged that Pakistan supplied the turban bomb used by a bomber and planned the bomb attack together with the Quetta Shura, the ruling council of the Taliban based in the southern Pakistani city of Quetta, the Associated Press reported.
If Pakistan does not help, Afghanistan will appeal to the United Nations to get involved, said the commission spokesman, who goes by the single name of Dr. Zia.
It is not the first time Afghanistan has blamed the Pakistani intelligence agency for involvement in the assassination.
On Sunday, Afghan Interior Minister Bismullah Muhammadi Khan said he has compelling evidence that shows the assassination of the former president had been devised months ago by the Taliban leadership council in Quetta and in cooperation with the Pakistani ISI.
Islamabad has denied the allegations.
Rabbani, who was serving as the head of Afghanistan's Peace Council, was killed on September 20 during a meeting with Taliban militants at his house in Kabul.
A militant, who had reportedly hidden explosives in his turban, blew himself up during the meeting.
Five other people, all senior Afghan officials, were also killed in the attack, and the head of the joint secretariat of the High Council for Peace, Massum Stanikzai, was injured.
