India sends fresh 26/11 info to Pak
India handed over fresh information on the November 26, 2008 Mumbai terrorist attacks to Pakistan on Wednesday.
This included the certified DNA report and confessional statement of prime accused Ajmal Amir Kasab.
“The Ministry of External Affairs today handed over to the Pakistani High Commission additional information and details relating to the Mumbai terror attack sought by Pakistan,” a statement issued by the ministry said.
Sources said replies had been provided to all 10 queries raised by Pakistan. The fresh evidence report comprises 15 booklets running into 1,500 pages.
The report was sent after Islamabad pointed out a major goof-up in New Delhi’s earlier reply to its queries wherein it had sent identical DNA reports for two terrorists — Kasab and Abu Ismail, one of the militants killed in the attack.
An embarrassed New Delhi had called the mistake a “minor clerical error”.
Islamabad had also sought additional information including Kasab’s confessional statement made before a Mumbai court.
