Pakistan demands more info on Mumbai attacks from India

May 7th, 2009 - 10:34 pm ICT by ANI  

Islamabad, May 7 (ANI): Pakistan on Thursday sought additional information on the Mumbai attacks from the Government of India “as soon as possible” so that it could put up a “credible prosecution” of all persons arrested by it for their alleged involvement in the terrorist strikes.

Pakistan would not be able to “put up a credible prosecution” of the persons arrested for alleged involvement in the terror attacks if New Delhi did not provide the additional information sought by Islamabad, said Foreign Office spokesman Abdul Basit on Thursday.

Pakistan is “very serious” about bringing to justice the persons it has arrested and it is thus necessary for India to provide the additional information and evidence “as soon as possible,” Basit told a weekly news briefing.

Basit said it in reply to a question on reported comments by Indian politicians about Pakistan not being serious about taking action against the persons it has arrested.

India has provided a dossier on the Mumbai attacks and responded to Pakistan’s 30 questions seeking additional information. Pakistan handed over to India another request for additional information last month. (ANI)
