Congress on Wednesday said it was due to India's consistent pressure on Pakistan which led it to register cases against Ajmal Amir Kasab, the lone terrorist arrested in the Mumbai attack case, and 14 others but termed it was not "enough".

"We are happy to note that due to India's consistent pressure, Pakistan had to register case against Kasab and others...But that is not enough. We would like all the 20 people, named in a list given to Pakistan, including Dawood (Ibrahim), to be sent to India to face trial," AICC General Secretary Digvijay Singh told reporters in the Capital.

The Congress leader said the kind of international pressure India was putting on Pakistan is now bearing fruit.

"But we will have to wait and see (Pakistan's intention). The entire world is looking at it," he said, adding that all the terrorist training camps in Pakistan must also be made non-operational.

Singh said the 20 people named in the list and given to Islambabad should be handed over to India as they have committed crime here and should be persecuted under the country's laws.
