“It is merely an attempt to malign the country. Let me reaffirm that India maintains a stringent law-based regulatory system for internationally controlled items which is reflected in our impeccable non-proliferation credentials recognised by the international community,” Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) spokesperson Arindam Bagchi said at a media briefing.

The spokesperson said the Department of Atomic Energy, after due evaluation and laboratory analysis of the material sample seized in Bokaro, has stated it was not uranium and not radioactive.

“The gratuitous remark on India by Pakistan’s foreign ministry, drawing upon a media report, indicates their disposition to malign India without caring to check or verify facts,” he added.

Last week, Pakistan’s foreign ministry called for a probe into what it called the seizure of radioactive material.
