By Farzana Shah-Asian Tribune correspondent in Pakistan

Lahore, 11 April, ( Authorities in Pakistan on Friday claimed to have credible evidence about direct involvement of Indian government and agencies in the March 3rd attack on Sri Lankan cricketers in Lahore.

The Lahore Police in a press conference announced having information about those responsible for the assault.

"With the help of other intelligence agencies there has been considerable progress in this case. One thing is for sure that there is an Indian hand behind the attack," Lahore Police Chief Pervez Rathore told reporters.

Rathore say they have found "evidence" of the Indian involvement in Liberty and Manawan police training centre. Manawan is just 15 km away from the Indian border.

Police sources also confirmed the arrest of an Indian intelligence operative in Rawalipindi and recovered important documents from his possession including maps of targets in major cities. The information provided by the arrested Indian national has already led to at least five further arrests.

On March 3rd about eight people were killed when gunmen attacked the bus carrying Sri Lankan cricket.
