world Updated: Feb 09, 2009 16:08 IST

Pakistan's report on its probe into the dossier provided by India into the Mumbai terror attacks was on Monday examined by a top level cabinet committee, headed by Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani before being handed over to New Delhi.

The meeting of the Defence Committee of the Cabinet (DCC) was attended among others by ISI chief Ahmad Shuja Pasha, the three services chiefs, including Army Chief Ashfaq Parvez Kayani.

Top officials of the Interior and Foreign ministry were present at the meeting that was also attended by Defence Minister Choudhury Ahmed Mukhtar.

Media reports had yesterday said that the government may file cases against five Pakistanis, including Ajmal Amir Kasab, the lone terrorist captured for the Mumbai attacks.

Reports have also said that the Interior Ministry's report states that the attacks were planned not in Pakistan or India but in a European country.

Gilani has said that the government will finalise its reponse to the Indian dossier after Defence Committee of the Cabinet examines the report.

The law ministry has already vetted the report and forwarded it to the Prime Minister's Office.
