"It is basically done to scuttle the peace process initiated by India. We know that the militant organization as well as the Pakistan Army is opposed to these talks, they don't want the relationship to improve between both the nations," Agha told reporters.

"It is a very sad incident; it should be condemned by the international community not just India and Pakistan. As international community has the responsibility to stop this menace which is coming from Pakistan," he added.

Asserting that the attack of Pathankot can be linked with Prime Minister Narendra Modi recently meeting with his Pakistani counterpart Nawaz Sharif, Agha said they (Pakistani militant outfits) have sleeper cells and they are using these militants for such attacks.

"They are very well prepared for this; earlier it was Kashmir now Punjab is in focus. The ISI is hand in gloves with the militants," he added.

Agha also said that there are parallel activities are going on, on one side the espionage is done and on the other side these militant attacks are done.
