Ahead of the second anniversary of Mumbai terror attacks, India is contemplating sending a blunt reminder to Pakistan that the perpetrators of the crime were yet to be punished with Laskhar-e-Taiba founder and mastermind Hafiz Saeed still a free man.
Government sources said New Delhi is preparing a report in which it will tell Islamabad that no one has been punished in Pakistan for the worst-ever terror attack in India despite India handing over enough evidence.
India will point out to Pakistan that the trial of seven 26/11 accused in that country was very slow and held up due to "unreasonable" demands made to India, including post-mortem report of all 166 dead victims and nine slain terrorists.
The report, which is likely to be sent to the neighbouring country in the next few days, will speak about Saeed, the mastermind of the attack, who is still a free man and is making provocative statements against India in ever public meeting he attends.
India will also remind Pakistan that its demand for voice samples of the handlers of the attackers was yet to be fulfilled despite repeated request.
New Delhi has been unhappy with the way Islamabad was handling the Mumbai terror attack issue and its "delaying tactics" as well as "casual approach" towards it.
