    It is really sad that a bright, upcoming and promising army officer Brig R.D. Mehta who was posted as defence attachee in Indian embassy in Kabul, Afghansitan was killed by the brutal suicide bomb blast in Indian embassy, Kabul. Alongwith Brig RD Mehta, a couple of Indian engineers and the civilian staff engaged in constuction of strategic roads and infrastructure in strife torn Afghanistan as a welfare measure by Indian government for the friendly people of Afghanistan were also killed. There is no doubt that this suicide bomb blast in Indian embassy, Kabul is the handiwork of Pakistan ISI who are hell-bent in thwarting India’s development Projects in Afghanistan. It is time, Afghnistan government had taken very tough measures in Afghanistn against Pakistan ISI.
