India on Tuesday urged Pakistan to act with "sincerity and decisiveness" against the perpetrators of the Mumbai carnage and said it was in the interests of the region if they were brought to book.
"The onus now is on the government of Pakistan to act with sincerity and decisiveness against the perpetrators and controllers of such attacks," Defence Minister AK Antony said while inaugurating the 11th Asian Security Conference in New Delhi.
"It is in the interest of this region and the rest of the world that such perpetrators of wanton violence are brought to justice and the infrastructure of terror is eliminated," the minister added.
India has blamed the Pakistan-based Lashkar-e-Taiba for the November 26-29, 2008 Mumbai mayhem that claimed the lives of more than 170 people, including 26 foreigners, and injured more than 300.
India January 5 submitted a detailed dossier to Pakistan pointing to the involvement of elements from its country in the Mumbai attacks.
Pakistani Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani said Sunday its Federal Investigation Agency had examined the dossier and had submitted a report that would soon be shared with India through diplomatic channels.
