India on Tuesday said it had provided adequate evidence to Pakistan to back its demand for the extradition of underworld don Dawood Ibrahim and there was no need for it to provide further proof.
Visiting Indian Foreign Secretary Shiv Shankar Menon said there was an Interpol Red Corner notice for Ibrahim's arrest and there were UN Security Council resolutions on his status.
He said the matter was now "past" the stage of providing evidence.
India and Pakistan were both working against terrorism and need to take "effective action" against the menace, Menon told a news conference after his talks in Islamabad with his Pakistani counterpart Salman Bashir to review the composite dialogue process.
He said the two countries need to deal with terrorism. "There are dangerous people out there who mean us harm. They have shown their capacity to do harm," he said.
Asked if India has submitted a fresh list of wanted terrorists to Pakistan, Menon said New Delhi has already given it to Islamabad.
On the Samjhautha blast, he said India had exchanged information on the issue during the anti-terrorism dialogue with Pakistan.
