Pak action against Mumbai accused hits 30 questions from India roadblockFebruary 18th, 2009 - 2:24 pm ICT by ANI
Islamabad, Feb.18 (ANI): The Mumbai terror attack probe has apparently hit a deadlock as Pakistan has said that it would start the prosecution of the arrested persons allegedly involved in plotting the attack, only after India replies to its dossier of 30 questions.
Pakistans Minister of State for Interior, Tasneem Ahmed Qureshi has said Islamabad would pursue the persons allegedly involved in the Mumbai attacks in court after getting replies to the questions raised in the Federal Investigation Agencys (FIA) report, The Daily Times reports.
Talking to reporters here, Qureshi said the investigations of 26/11 were still-on, and agencies could not arrive to a conclusion unless New Delhi co-operates and answers the queries raised in the initial probe.
India would have to cooperate for an effective investigation and conclusion. The government was serious in bringing the culprits to justice, Qureshi said.
Pakistan, while admitting to use of its soil for plotting the Mumbai attacks had sought answers from India on thirty questions including the details of fingerprints of the 10 gunmen, their intercepted phone conversations with their handlers and the DNA samples of lone surviving terrorist Ajmal Kasab.
