India slams Pak for seeking more proof in 26/11 case

Slamming Pakistan for seeking more evidence on 26/11 attack, India on Saturday said “99 per cent” evidence is already with Islamabad since the planning, training and financing for the Mumbai terror strike happened in the neighbouring country itself.

New Delhi’s aggressive stance came a day after Pakistan foreign office said they need more evidence from the Indian government to take action against the perpetrators of terrorist attack on Mumbai.

“The entire planning of the dastardly Mumbai terrorist attack was hatched in Pakistan, the training of the terrorists who launched that attack was undertaken in Pakistan, the financing of the conspiracy was in Pakistan. It, therefore, follows that 99 per cent of the evidence will be available in Pakistan. It is incumbent on the authorities there to present that evidence in order to bring to book the perpetrators of the Mumbai attacks,” ministry of external affairs spokesperson said in a release.

The ministry also pointed out that the government has fully cooperated with the Pakistani judicial commission that visited India towards the end of September 2013 and all “the information that they wanted was handed over to the Pakistan High Commission in New Delhi on 14-15 October”.

“It now devolves on Pakistan authorities to ensure that justice is done in the Mumbai attack case in accordance with their own assurances,” the spokesperson stressed.
