Pak rejects India's charges of ISI hand in 26/11

delhi Updated: Jun 27, 2012 20:17 IST

Pakistan on Wednesday dismissed India's charges of ISI involvement in 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks. Defending the ISI, Pakistani interior minister Rehman Malik said India's allegations against the agency were baseless.

Blaming home minsiter P Chidambaram of 'unnecessarily targeting ISI', Malik said that the intelligence agency protects Pakistan and does not carry out terror strikes.

He pointed out that arrested 26/11 attack handler, Abu Jindal was an Indian citizen and that Pakistan cannot be blamed for Jindal's action.

"On previous occasions when India accused ISI of being behind attacks, they were later proved to be wrong. Blaming someone is very easy, but proving is very, very difficult," said Malik.

“The Indian govt should give evidence of links between Zabauddin (Abu Jundal) and two accused Faheem Ansari and Sabauddin. If Jundal ever entered Pakistan, it was via illegal means," he added.

Chidambaram had on Wednesday said that that Jindal admitted to the involvement of the ISI in the 26/11 attacks.
