Pakistan will have to handover terror groups that are running training camps for terrorists who have been involved in attacks in India including the one in Mumbai, Union Minister of State for Home, Sriprakash Jaiswal said on Thursday.
"There will be no compromise with Pakistan on the issue and all options are open for India," Jaiswal told reporters in Nagpur without stating any set deadline for Pakistan to act on evidences given in connection with the involvement of their men in the Mumbai terror strikes.
"Enough evidences have been provided of some Pakistani men directly involved in the terror attacks and the Pak soil was used for giving training to them," he said.
On the issue of a war with Pakistan, Jaiswal said these matters can not be discussed. "India has a culture of non-violence and restraint," he said.
Jaiswal who is here to inaugurate All India Khasdar Trophy (Member of Parliament) Kabaddi Tournament said that as per intelligence reports, fake currency notes were also being pumped into the country from Bangladesh and Pakistan.
On fighting naxalism, he said the respective state governments have to tackle the issue through development initiatives.
On providing helicopters to fight the naxal menace, Jaiswal said proposals were still under consideration and admitted that private companies were reluctant to provide choppers on hired basis for fear of safety of these machines.
