Pakistan's spy agency orchestrated the July 11 Mumbai train bombings which killed more than 200 people, the city's top police officer said Saturday night, an accusation that threatened to derail the already shaky peace process between the nuclear-armed neighbors. Pakistani officials immediately denied the accusation, with a Foreign Ministry statement calling the comments by Mumbai Police Commissioner A.N. Roy "irresponsible." A 2001 attack on India's Parliament, blamed on the same agency, almost pushed India and Pakistan to war. But Roy said an intensive investigation, which included questioning suspects drugged with "truth serum," revealed that Pakistan's top spy agency, the Directorate of Inter Services Intelligence, or ISI, was behind the bombings. "The conspiracy was hatched in Pakistan," Roy said at a news conference. "The terror plot was ISI-sponsored and executed by Lashkar-e-Tayyaba operatives with help from the Students' Islamic Movement of India."
