Pakistan has once again refused to believe "evidence" that the Mumbai terror attacks were organised and planned from Pakistani soil. This come right after India handed over arrested Mumbai terrorist Ajmal Kasab's letter stating that he is a Pakistani citizen.Televesion channels reported that the Pakistan Dawn News has quoted Pakistan foreign ministry sources saying that the 'letter itself is not ample proof."

Pakistan continues to remain defiant even after arrested terrorist's repeated confessions to the Mumbai police and investigations by both - international and Pakistan's domestic media that have proved that Kasab lived in a village in Pakistan's Faridkot.

The Pakistan foreign office, speaking to the local media, said , "The Indian government needs to provide ample proof to establish Kasab's identity."

Kasab, who hails from Faridkot village in Pakistan's Punjab province, was captured on November 26 soon after the group of 10 heavily-armed terrorists launched attacks in Mumbai.

The terrorist, who is in police custody, wrote the letter last week and it was forwarded by the Mumbai police to MEA for handing it over to the Pakistan high commission.

In his letter addressed to the Pakistan High Commission, Kasab has stated that he and the other terrorists killed in the attack were from Pakistan.

Kasab has also sought a meeting with the Pakistan high commission. This is the first time India is officially handing over proof of Kasab's nationality to Pakistan.
