The Centre today made it clear that it has no input suggesting that Pakistan's intelligence agency ISI had contacted victims of riots in Muzaffarnagar in Uttar Pradesh. "As per the available information from Central intelligence agency, they do not have any input to suggest that Pakistan ISI had contacted youth of families belonging to minority communities, who were affected during recent communal riots in Muzaffarnagar," Minister of State for Home RPN Singh told Rajya Sabha.            

Delhi Police in January had claimed that two suspected LeT operatives had met two people in Muzaffarnagar region.       

However, the police denied that the two residents of Muzaffarnagar were riot victims or had anything to do with the violence there.

Congress Vice-President Rahul Gandhi had claimed in October 2013 that ISI had approached victims of the riots, creating a major controversy.
