Chidambaram answers Pak queries on Mumbai attack to MukherjeeMarch 13th, 2009 - 8:01 pm ICT by ANI
New Delhi , Mar 13 (ANI): Home Minister P. Chidambaram on Friday submitted answers to the 30 questions forwarded by Pakistan on the Mumbai attack to External Affairs Minister Pranab Mukherjee.
India s reply to Pakistan s 30 queries is comprehensive and now it is up to Pakistan to prove its intent by acting on the details, Chidambaram said.
It may be recalled that Pakistan put forward 30 questions, and among them were a requirement of a copy of Kasabs statement to the Mumbai Police, his I-card number and other documents, a description of the terrorists killed, transcription of conversation between the terrorists and their handlers, fingerprints of all terrorists and DNA profiles of all terrorists, including Ajmal Amir Kasab, the lone survivour of Mumbai attacks.
According to sources, India will submit a report to Pakistan soon. There is, however, no confirmation about whether New Delhi will summon Pakistan High Commissioner to India Shahid Malik, or will hand over the document to the Indian High Commission in Islamabad for onward transmission to the Pakistan Foreign Office.
The answers could help Pakistan to take the investigations into the attack from its side to their logical conclusions.
Earlier, Pakistani authorities had said it might have to stop its probe into the Mumbai attacks due to a lack of cooperation from India . (ANI)
