Terming it “fifth-generation warfare,” the Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) on Saturday denied any involvement in the attack on journalist Asad Ali Toor.

After a high-level meeting on the incident held between the ISI and the Ministry of Information, a statement was released on behalf of the country’s apex intelligence agency.

“The continuation of such allegations shows that the ISI is being targeted […] under an organised conspiracy,” said the statement, stressing that the agency had nothing to do with the incident.

“The ISI believes that when the faces of the accused can be clearly seen on CCTV, there should be no hurdle in the investigation,” the statement added.

The ISI called for strict action against those responsible and assured its complete cooperation in the ongoing investigation into the incident.

According to the statement, the Ministry of Information is in touch with Islamabad police in this regard and hopes that the accused will be brought to justice soon.

“This practice of levelling accusations against institutions without evidence should end.

“Such negative traditions are part of a conspiracy against the country’s institutions and the real culprits will soon be exposed,” the statement said.
