Islamabad, Mar 6 (ANI): The head of global police agency Interpol Ronald Noble on Friday met Pakistans interior ministry chief Rehman Malik as part of an investigation into the Mumbai attacks.

Malik has been leading Pakistans counter-terrorism efforts about the Mumbai investigation.

According to The Dawn, Malik shared the investigation report on Mumbai attacks with the general secretary of Interpol.

Noble appreciated the work done by investigators and asked Pakistan to take sincere efforts to investigate the case.

New Delhi blamed the Mumbai attacks, which killed 165 people last November; on the Pakistan-based militant group Lashkar-i-Taiba (LeT) and the siege soured a five-year peace process between nuclear-armed India and Pakistan.

Mohammad Ajmal Amir Iman was the only alleged member of the 10-man commando-style unit captured alive during the November 26-29 siege.

Both LeT and Pakistan have denied any involvement in the attacks but the government in Islamabad admitted last month for the first time that the strikes were partly planned on its soil.

Pakistan said it had filed a case against eight people suspected of a role in the siege, and that six of them were in custody.

Robert Mueller, the director of the US Federal Bureau of Investigation visited Pakistan on Wednesday and Nobel last visited Islamabad in December. (ANI)
