Islamabad, Nov 28 (UNI) Pakistan will send the chief of its spy agency Inter-Services Intelligence, Lieutenant General Ahmad Shuja Pasha, to India to help probe the terrorist attacks in Mumbai.
''Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh made a request to his Pakistani counterpart Yousuf Raza Gilani during a telephonic conversation, asking him to send the ISI chief to India for investigation, which the latter accepted,'' a senior official in Prime Minister's secretariat told UNI.
He said Pakistan Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gilani said arrangements would be finalised as early as possible for the visit of Lieutenant General Ahmad Shuja Pasha to India.
Mr Gilani, who telephoned Dr Singh this morning, expressed his strong condemnation over the acts of terrorism in Mumbai and extended his government's full support to jointly combat extremism and terrorism.
Mr Gilani said, ''Pakistan is also a victim of terrorism and appreciated the fact that the Indian Prime Minister was the first one to telephone him after the September 20 Marriott blast.'' Mr Gilani also expressed sympathy on behalf of the people and the government of Pakistan with the families of those who lost their near and dear ones in these unfortunate acts of barbarism.
