Pakistan on Saturday termed as baseless and fabricated the Mumbai police's finding that its intelligence agency, the Inter-Services Intelligence masterminded the July 11 train blasts and said it was aimed at maligning the country.
"It is a totally baseless and fabricated allegations," Interior Minister Aftab Ahmed Khan Sherpao said.
"We totally reject it as it is aimed at maligning Pakistan at a time when the leadership of the two countries met in Havana and such baseless allegations are not going to help," he said.
While the Pakistan Foreign Office was yet to react, Minister of State for Information Tariq Azam rejected the claim and said India can provide any evidence it has and that Pakistan will investigate it.
The Mumbai police disclosures came son after President Pervez Musharraf returned from an 18-day tour during which he visited Brussels, Havana, the United States and Britain.
