PESHAWAR- A new Pakistani Taliban group behind this week's devastating suicide bombing on the Pakistani-Indian border said the attack was as much aimed at India as Pakistan, suggesting that Indian targets might be next.

At least 57 Pakistanis were killed during a popular flag-lowering ceremony on Sunday when a bomber tried to get as close as possible to the border in a possible attempt to cause casualties on the Indian side as well.

Ehsanullah Ehsan, a prominent militant and spokesman for the group, Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan Jamaat Ahrar (TTP-JA), said he had warned Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi that attacks in India were in the pipeline.

Kashmir is a disputed Himalayan territory over which India and Pakistan have fought two of their three wars.

"We have proudly stated that our target was the Pakistani security forces and their installations in which we succeeded," Ehsan told.

Ehsan said that unlike the TTP's narrow focus on war in the tribal areas on the Afghan border, his outfit sought to attack countries around the region.
