New Delhi, Nov 28 (UNI) Chief of Pakistan's Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI), Lieutenant General Ahmad Shuja Pasha, will come to India to assist Indian authorities probe the Mumbai terror attacks.

The decision by Pakistan to send Lt Gen Pasha to India follows a request by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to his Pakistani counterpart Yousuf Raza Gilani during a telephonic conversation today.

The Pakistan Prime Minister had telephoned Dr Singh to express strong condemnation of the Mumbai terror incident and extended his government's full support to jointly combat extremism and terrorism.

Pakistan President Asif Ali Zardari also telephoned Dr Singh to express solidarity with India in the fight against terrorism.

Dr Singh had yesterday said the ''well-planned and well-orchestrated attacks,'' had ''external linkages.'' ''...It is evident that the group which carried out these attacks, based outside the country, had come with single-minded determination to create havoc in the commercial capital of the country,'' the Prime Minister said in a televised address, in what is seen as an allusion to Pakistan.
