Whereas, the same outfit carried out 22 attacks in Afghanistan which left 912 people dead and 1,597 others injured, since 2016 to till date.
As per the report, India invested heavily in Afghanistan pumped in up to US three billion dollars in the war-ravaged country.

The dirty game continues as New Delhi remains active in exploiting sub-nationalists in Balochistan and Sindh.
Meanwhile, graphic images in the aftermath of the horrific blast at Kabul airport shook the world as families mourned the deaths of 170 people, including 13 US servicemen, prompting US President Joe Biden to warn the terrorist group of Islamic State-Khorasan Province (ISIS-K) that it will have to pay the ultimate price.
“To ISIS-K we are not done with you yet,” President Biden said in his address to the Americans, a day after his country pulled out the last of its troops from the war-ravaged country, bringing to an end its 20-year long war.
“To those who wish America harm, we will hunt you down and you will pay the ultimate price,” he said in a stern warning to the ISIS-K, which has emerged as a major threat to regional peace.
The ISKP, despite its small numbers, has proved lethal and took credit for several major terrorist attacks in Afghanistan and Pakistan.
