February 11th, 2009 - 8:39 pm ICT by IANS  

New Delhi, Feb 11 (IANS) External Affairs Minister Pranab Mukherjee Wednesday declined to comment on Pakistan’s reported decision to file charges against Ajmal Amir Kasab, the lone terrorist captured after the Mumbai attacks for which New Delhi blamed Pakistani terrorists.
“We have yet to get a report from (Pakistan). The problem is unless we have official information from Pakistani authorities, it is difficult for any (Indian) official spokesperson to comment,” Mukherjee told reporters outside his office.

His comments came as Pakistani media reported that Islamabad had charged Kasab and some others with involvement in the November Mumbai attacks that killed some 170 people. Pakistan had initially claimed that Kasab was not its nationa.
