Shinde: Pak should take urgent, quick action to punish attackers

New Delhi, November 26
Pakistan should punish those involved in the 2008 Mumbai terror attacks as enough evidence has been given to the neighbouring country, Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde said today.

"We have handed over all the relevant proof to Pakistan. We are urging them to take quick and urgent action against the perpetrators of 26/11 attack," he told reporters here on the occasion of the fifth anniversary of the country's worst terror strike.

Shinde said for expediting the trial in Pakistan, India had permitted a Pakistani judicial commission to visit the country twice to examine and take statements of investigating officers and others in connection with the case.

On terror infrastructure across the border, Shinde said despite repeated appeals, Pakistan has not taken any action. As many as 166 persons were killed when 10 LeT terrorists carried out the audacious attack in Mumbai on November 26, 2008 after coming from Karachi via the sea route. PTI

The trial of 7 accused, including LeT chief Zaki-ur-Rehman Lakhvi, has been proceeding at a very slow pace despite repeated pleas by India to expedite it. Pakistan has also not yet taken any action against LeT founder Hafiz Saeed

Our governments are cooperating closely to combat the threat of global terrorism," the spokesperson said. PTI
