India should put a liability clause for Pakistan and Afghanistan in the TAPI pipeline, holding them responsible for security of pipeline in their respective territories.

Incidents like this one shows that iran pakistan and TAPI gas line are not physible due to poor security in Pakistan. Keep it up and very soon talk of these pipe lines will disappear from the news too.
