According to Afghanistan Balkh Police chief, Sayed Kamal Sadat the Pakistani military officers were behind the Indian consulate attack in Mazar-e-Sharif. They were educated, well prepared and had intelligence. Sayed Kamal Sadat, police chief of Afghanistan's northern Balkh province, said the attackers, "officers from across the border, were well-trained military men who fought Afghan security forces in the 25-hour siege".

There are strong indications that Pakistani officers were involved in the attack on the Indian Consulate in Mazar-e-Sharif in Afghanistan. If this is true, then it will definitely changes the equation vis-à-vis India attending the next foreign secretary-level meeting scheduled on 15th January, 2016.
