Pak terms Indian response to its 30 questions ‘unsatisfactory’March 30th, 2009 - 6:11 pm ICT by ANI
Islamabad, Mar.30 (ANI): Carrying on its rhetoric about insufficient information provided by India to facilitate the Mumbai terror attack investigations, Pakistan has once again termed the Indian response to its 30 questions as ‘unsatisfactory’.
“The process of scrutiny of Indian replies is near completion and the rest of examination will not take more than a couple of days. However, as the things move towards conclusion we could say that Indian response is not satisfactory,” The Nation quoted a senior official, as saying.
He said though the 400 page Indian response was detailed, it did not include important documents such as the authenticated confessional statement of Ajmal Amir Kasab,the lone surviving Mumbai attacker, given before the Indian court.
New Delhi’s response included the DNA samples of Kasab and seven other terrorists’ involved in the Mumbai massacre, details of their fingerprints, transcripts of phone conversations between them and their Pakistan-based handlers.
“India not provided the DNA profiles of two remaining alleged terrorists and their fingerprints as their bodies were mutilated,” the official said.
He informed that the scrutiny of the documents was about to be completed , and once it was done Pakistan would inform India about its reading and assessment on the issue.
“The Interior Ministry will send its assessment to Foreign office that will forward it soon to Pakistani High Commission in New Delhi to be handed over to Indian Foreign Ministry subsequently,” the official added. (ANI)
