india Updated: Dec 19, 2008 20:57 IST

Senior Congress leader Kapil Sibal on Friday welcomed former Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif's acknowledgement that Ajmal Kasab, the lone surviving terrorist in the Mumbai terror attacks, is a Pakistani.

"We welcome Sharif's statement acknowledging that Ajmal is a Pakistani. We already had that knowledge like every one does," Sibal, who is also the Science and technology minister, told reporters.

"All big democracies in the world agree that resources in Pakistan were used for the dastardly terrorist attack on Mumbai," he said.

Sharif told Geo News that he checked and found out that Ajmal Kasab's native village has been cordoned off and his parents shifted out to an undisclosed location to evade the media.
