Malik briefs Sabharwal on probe into 26/11 attacks


Sources said Malik briefed Sabharwal on Pakistan’s response to India's latest dossier on the Mumbai attacks, which had called on Islamabad to take action against Jamaat-ud-Dawah chief Hafiz Mohammad Saeed, the alleged mastermind of the assault.
No further details were immediately available. There was also no official word on the meeting.
Pakistan has made considerable progress in its probe into Mumbai attacks despite sketchy information (from India), he said.
Pakistan has already said the evidence provided so far by India is inadequate for arresting or prosecuting Saeed. Seven suspects arrested by Pakistani authorities in connection with the Mumbai attacks, including five Lashker-e-Taiba operatives, are currently facing trial in an anti-terrorism court.
"We have information about 35 hideouts of terrorists and we will be submitting them before the court (trying the seven persons arrested for the Mumbai attacks),"  Malik said and added that the boats used by the Mumbai attackers are in Pakistan's custody.
Earlier in the day, Malik discussed Pakistan's probe into the Mumbai attacks with Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani.
During a meeting with the premier, Malik updated him on the progress in investigations and "took further guidance from" Gilani, said a statement issued by the Prime Minister's office.
