This past week reports surfaced that Indian intelligence was planning attacks on CPEC projects in Pakistan. Today, Pakistan’s Interior Minister Ahsan Iqbal amped up those allegations. Iqbal claims New Delhi is not only plotting CPEC sabotage, but is also responsible for the recent death of a Chinese executive. The Chinese killing in Karachi, Pakistan has only increased tension between regional rivals India and Pakistan.
Monday, a Chinese shipping executive was shot and killed in Karachi, Pakistan’s largest city. Although police are still investigating the incident, Pakistan has quickly pointed the finger at India.
