December 12th, 2008 - 7:18 pm ICT by ANI  

Islamabad, Dec 12 (ANI): Pakistan today pressed India to share evidence from the Mumbai attacks, warning that any effort to prosecute key suspects rounded up in Pakistan will be hamstrung without it.

Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi said that Pakistan firmly believed that its territory should not be used to commit any act of terrorism, Dawn reported.

However, our own investigations cannot proceed beyond a certain point without provision of credible information and evidence pertaining to Mumbai attacks, Qureshi said in a televised statement.

Indian authorities have released what they said were the names and Pakistani hometowns of the 10 gunmen who assailed Indias commercial capital over three days.

Indian investigators alleged that the gunmen were trained in camps in Pakistan after interrogating the lone gunman captured alive.

Pakistan insists that its own investigation has had to rely on Indian news reports due to the lack of information coming from authorities. (ANI)
