Accusing Pakistan of not doing enough to bring to book the perpetrators of the 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh has said India does not know whom to deal with in Islamabad as the army is the most powerful force in the neighbouring country.

"No, they (Pakistan) have not done enough," Singh told CNN in an interview which was taken in New Delhi and aired minutes before the Prime Minister arrived in Washington on the first State Visit of the Obama Administration.

"They have taken some steps. I have discussed this matter with (Pakistan) Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani, when we met at Sharm al-Sheikh (in Egypt). The joint statement we issued, he assured us Pakistan will do all that is possible to bring to justice the perpetrators of Mumbai massacre," he said.

"But it is our feeling that Pakistan has not done enough. Hafeez Saeed is roaming around freely. Maulana Azhar Masood and other terrorist elements, the Lashkar-e-Toiba, according to Pakistan's own admissions is actively involved in perpetrating massacre in Mumbai, they are moving around freely. The conspiracy took place in Pakistan," Singh said.

He said a "friendly" government in Pakistan, which would be equally determined to tackle terrorism, would take the case to its logical conclusion.

"That is not happening," the Prime Minister said.
