Describing the action taken by Pakistan to prosecute 26/11 masterminds as a “facade”, home secretary GK Pillai said Islamabad was not going to do anything due to fears that a crackdown would provoke them to spill the beans about Pakistani officials’ role in the attack.

In an interview published in the Wall Street Journal, Pillai said David Headley, who pleaded guilty to surveying the hotels, had identified the voice of key conspirators from Indian intelligence intercepts and the information had been passed on to the Pakistani authorities.

Pillai said, “I don’t think they’re going to do anything about it.” He added Pakistan’s moves to advance the case are a “facade” and ignored the people in the “control room” who were the architects of the attacks. Pillai argued Pakistan was wary of cracking down on top militants.
