Questioning Pakistan for not prosecuting those involved in the Mumbai terror attack, Home Minister P Chidambaram on Monday said the material provided to it was "more than adequate" to proceed against the conspirators.
"I dont want to be harsh in my first comments on Pakistan. But any prosecutor, any prosecuting agency should be more than satisfied with the first dossier, the second answering of 20 questions and the third providing clarifications," Chidambaram told reporters on the first day in office.
The Home Minister said, "I think there is abundant material to prosecute those they have arrested and those they have accused of launching the dastardly attack in Mumbai."
Chidambaram said in his view both as Minister and as lawyer "the material that has been furnished to them is more than adequate to press ahead with the prosecution."
India had given the third dossier on May 20 which includes certified DNA report and statement of the lone arrested terrorist Ajmal Amir Kasab.
On March 13, Pakistan was handed over a second 401-page dossier, containing question-by-question replies and annexures. The first dossier was handed over to Pakistan on January 5.
