Unhappy over Pakistan's repeated claim about lack of evidence to prosecute Jamaat-ud Dawa chief Hafiz Saeed, India on Wednesday said it should not ask any more questions as enough proof has been provided in the dossiers on Mumbai attacks.
"They should not ask any more questions. Everything is contained in the dossier," Home Minister P Chidambaram told reporters in New Delhi when asked to comment on Pakistan's claim that it does not have evidence to prosecute Saeed, whom India has identified as prime accused in Mumbai attacks.
"It has been a little tiresome," he said while referring to Pakistan's repeated claim that it does not have proof to prosecute Saeed and it has been seeking it from India.
Chidambaram said Pakistan has "enough evidence to prosecute the perpetrators... They should get on with their job."
Pakistan's Interior Minister Rahman Malik said in an interview on Tuesday, "We do not have any proof against Hafiz Saeed. We have demanded and we are demanding from India that if you have proof, give (it to) us, but do not do propaganda."
Contending that Pakistan cannot "arrest our citizen" on the basis of "hearsay", Malik had said "If New Delhi wants some credible action, it needs to provide substantial evidence."
