Fed up with Islamabad’s unending calls for more information on the 26/11 probe, New Delhi on Friday made it clear that it was for Pakistan to decide what kind of relationship it wanted with India.
India, which has till now given six dossiers on the Mumbai terrorist attackers to Pakistan, also rejected Pakistan’s claim that adequate evidence was not available to prosecute Jamaat-ud Dawa chief Hafiz Sayeed.
“Islamabad has admitted that the planning, plotting and conspiracy were hatched in Pakistan and it is up to them to act. They have all the information at their command. India is only assisting this process,” a senior official said on condition on anonymity.
“It is for Pakistan to decide what kind of relations it wants (with India). We have regularly given information and evidence as and when it was collected and collated. We have also made it clear that we are ready to provide more information whenever available,” the official said.
“There is enough, substantive information available with Pakistan. We would like Pakistan to take action that is speedy, open, transparent and meaningful,” he said.
Pakistan’s Foreign Office spokesman Abdul Basit had said recently that the last dossier from India was a rehash of information received in previous dossiers.
