India is expected to present an updated dossier on 26/11 prime accused and Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) chief patron Hafiz Muhammed Saeed to Pakistan during the forthcoming home secretary-level talks.
The dossier is based on the interrogation report of his accomplice David Coleman Headley and relevant US court documents.
After Saeed was discussed in the meeting between Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Pakistan President Asif Ali Zardari, New Delhi has asked for the dates for the home secretary talks after the Parliament session on May 22.
With the US putting a bounty of $10 million on Saeed’s head this month, New Delhi is contemplating seeking fresh interrogation or even the extradition of Headley in order to dig out concrete evidence against Saeed.
While a formal decision on both is still to be taken, the internal security establishment wants to beef up its case against Saeed on the basis of the revelations of Headley to sleuths of the NIA and court documents obtained in July 2011 from the US.
