Concerned over the “lack of progress” in the Mumbai terror attacks cases in Pakistan, India on Thursday issued a note verbale to Islamabad asking it to fulfill its “obligation and commitment” to bring to justice the perpetrators of the 26/11 carnage.
In a strongly-worded diplomatic note, issued on the eve of Mumbai terror attacks anniversary, India expressed “regret” for not receiving feedback on several issues raised by it, including information on the names of seven persons involved in the attacks given by Home Minister P Chidambaram during his meeting with his Pakistani counterpart in June in Islamabad, government sources said.
The names of seven “handlers” involved in the 26/11 included that of two officers in the Pakistani Army.
The sources said New Delhi also reminded Islamabad that there has been no feedback from Pakistan on its request for voice samples of Pakistan-based “handlers” of the 10 terrorists who attacked Mumbai on November 26, 2008 in which 166 people were killed. “It is a matter of regret,” it said. India has been demanding voice samples of the handlers whose conversations were intercepted while the attack unfolded as this will help in the investigations into the Mumbai terror attacks.
India also pointed out “lack of progress” in the trial of seven Lashker-e-Toiba operatives in Pakistan who were arrested in connection with the 26/11 attacks, sources said.
Security intensified
As the city gears up to mark the second anniversary of 26/11 carnage in which 166 people were killed, police have sounded an alert and intensified security following reports that Pakistan-based terror outfit Lashkar-e-Taiba may launch strikes here.
“With terror threat lingering over the city in the view of the second anniversary of 26/11, we have made elaborate security arrangements and Mumbai has been put on alert,” DCP (Operations) Rajkumar Vhatkar said here today. A foreign intelligence agency had informed Delhi recently that LeT may launch “spectacular strikes” in crowded places in Mumbai, similar to the one carried out two years ago, he said, adding, a slew of programmes have been planned to mark the anniversary and proper security has been ensured for the same.
Tight security is in place as union home minister P Chidambaram will be in Mumbai to participate at a programme to be held at the CNG filling station in Borivli, police said.
