KARACHI: Interior Minister Rehman Malik on Monday demanded a formal apology from India to Pakistan for implicating a deceased member of the Sindh Assembly from Muttahida Qaumi Movement Manzar Imam in the recent bomb blasts in Hyderabad, India.

India TV on Sunday used an image of the late MPA Manzar Imam for an alleged suspect involved in the recent blasts in Hyderabad.

"I demand from India a formal apology. It has brought ill-repute to Pakistan. Provide us the proof for making such serious allegations," he said while talking to media after a consultative meeting of the Security and Exchange Commission of Pakistan (SECP) in Islamabad.

He urged India to verify before making comments. He said that late Manzar Imam had a positive record and was a gentleman.

The Indian news channel was referring to a member of the Indian Mujahideen (IM), however, used Imam’s photo. The IM member was allegedly the “mastermind” behind the bombings.
