Manmohan SinghNew Delhi, Jan 9 (IANS) US Ambassador David Mulford Friday tread cautiously on the alleged involvement of Pakistani official agencies in the Mumbai terror attack, saying accusations could not be made “without proof”. “I don’t want to make accusations without proof,” Mulford replied when asked whether the US suspected the involvement of official agencies in the Mumbai terror strike.

The ambassador said the Mumbai attack appeared to have been carried out by people from Pakistan and “managed and monitored by Pakistan”.

“We’ll press ahead as long as it takes,” he said at a function organised by the industry lobby Confederation of Indian Industry (CII).

Prime Minister Manmohan Singh had said Tuesday that “given the sophistication and military precision of the (Mumbai) attack it must have had the support of some official agencies in Pakistan”.
