ISLAMABAD: Pakistan has rejected India’s decision of closing the probe of highly irresponsible firing of a rogue supersonic missile into Pakistani territory. Pakistan has demanded a joint probe of this incident.

“We have seen Indians announcement of the findings of an internal Court of Inquiry regarding the of firing of a rogue supersonic missile into Pakistani territory on 9 March, 2022. India has terminated services of three Indian Air Force (IAF) officers who were held responsible for the reckless incident.

“We have seen India’s announcement of the findings of an internal Court of Inquiry regarding the incident of firing of a rogue supersonic missile into Pakistani territory on 9 March, 2022 and the decision to terminate the services of three Indian Air Force (IAF) officers reportedly found responsible for the reckless incident.

The Foreign Office spokesperson said that the measures taken by New Delhi were “unsatisfactory, deficient and inadequate”.

“India has not only failed to respond to Pakistan’s demand for a joint inquiry but also evaded the questions raised by Pakistan about the command and control system in place in India,” said the spokesperson.

The spokesperson said the “systemic loopholes and technical lapses of serious nature in handling of strategic weapons could not be hushed up with just individual human error”.

“If India has nothing to hide then Indian government must accept Pakistan’s demand for a joint probe in the spirit of transparency.

According to the FO statement, the imprudent Indian action of March 9, 2022 had jeopardized the peace and security environment of the entire region. Pakistan’s restraint was a testament of our systemic maturity and abiding commitment to peace as a responsible nuclear state,” said the spokesperson.

Pakistan also called for the Indian government to “immediately provide specific responses to the queries raised” by Islamabad after the incident.
