India on Saturday said it will continue to build pressure on Pakistan to ensure that a case is registered against Jamaat-ud Dawa chief Hafiz Saeed in the Mumbai attack case.


“We are concerned immediately with the terror attack on Mumbai. As long as that doesn’t find any place in FIR, India certainly would impress upon Pakistan,” External Affairs Minister SM Krishna said in Turkmenistan.

He said Pakistan must bring to justice the perpetrators of the attack on Mumbai.

Pakistan has filed two cases against Saeed for inciting people for jehad and inviting donations for the same. However, no mention has been made in the FIRs to Mumbai attacks, for which India holds him responsible.

India has been saying that it has given ample proof about Saeed’s involvement in Mumbai attacks but Pakistan maintains that there is no evidence against him.

To a question on Chinese incursions, Krishna said it would be “in the larger interest” of both India and China to resolve the boundary issue so that “peace and tranquillity” on the border is maintained.
