No input of ISI contacting Muzaffarnagar riot victims: Govt
New Delhi: The Centre on Wednesday made it clear that it has no input suggesting that Pakistan`s intelligence agency ISI had contacted victims of riots in Muzaffarnagar in Uttar Pradesh.
"As per the available information from Central intelligence agency, they do not have any input to suggest that Pakistan ISI had contacted youth of families belonging to minority communities, who were affected during recent communal riots in Muzaffarnagar," Minister of State for Home RPN Singh told Rajya Sabha.
