Pakistan on Friday said no headway can be made in its probe into the Mumbai attacks till India responds to its 30 questions seeking more information about the 26/11 strikes.

Pakistan is "not desisting from its responsibility in the investigation" but no headway can be made till Indian authorities respond to the 30 questions, Interior Ministry chief Rehman Malik told reporters in Lahore

Most of the material related to the case, including evidence, is in India as the incident occurred in the neighbouring country, Malik said. Pakistan will continue its investigation and share information with India, he added.

"We firmly believe that anybody who is a criminal, irrespective of whether he is Pakistani, Indian or anyone else, should be brought to justice," Malik said.

Pakistan submitted the 30 queries seeking further information, along with its response to the Indian dossier on the Mumbai attacks on February 12. Pakistani authorities have arrested six suspects in connection with the attacks.

Four of these suspects -- Lashker-e-Taiba operatives Zakiur Rehman Lakhvi, Zarar Shah, Abu al Qama and Hamad Amin Sadiq -- have been remanded to police custody till March 17.
