LAHORE - Intelligence officials have strongly condemned the baseless and malicious report published in local English daily (not TheNation), which alleged that the two motorcyclists shot by Raymond Davis in Lahore were intelligence operatives. The report had claimed that death of the intelligence personnel was the reason behind the governments reluctance to free Davis and that it was in retaliation to summoning of top ISI official by a US court. The officials regretted that such speculative reporting appearing on the front page of a major newspaper on such a sensitive matter, which was subjudice and detrimental to the security interests of Pakistan, was published without any confirmation from the concerned quarters. The official vehemently denied that there was no linkage whatsoever, between the US courts summon and the Lahore incident. The intelligence agency reserves the right to initiate legal action against the paper, said the official.
