An Indian peace delegation, during its visit to Pakistan after the Mumbai terror strikes, has tried to impress upon the Zardari government to expedite prosecution of the perpetrators of the carnage saying the people in New Delhi are "angered" by the ghastly incident.

The 13-member delegation, led by veteran journalist Kuldeep Nayar, had met several officials of the Pakistani government and members of civil society groups during their five-day visit to Lahore and Islamabad which ended on Thursday.

"We highlighted the anger among people of India in the wake of Mumbai attacks. They are waiting for justice. We told them that you are proceeding in that direction but your are doing it at your own pace. We want it quickly," Nayar told reporters in New Delhi on Friday.

The delegation members, which include former Foreign Secretary Salman Haider and religious leader Swami Agnivesh, said the Pakistani authorities had told them that they were "working sincerely" towards it and trying to gather more evidences against those involved in the November 26 attacks.
