New Delhi, Jan 4: It is time to prove Pakistan's hand in the Mumbai Terror Attacks. India will next week give a dossier of evidence to Pakistan which will make Pakistan accept their role in the 26/11 attacks.
The dossier will be given to Pakistan, China, US, UK and other key countries. The evidence will be given to their ambassadors in India as well as in their capitals simultaneously. "We expect Pakistan to act on the evidence we provide," said senior government sources.
The international community will be expected to push Pakistan to act against terrorism in their own country. On Saturday, PM Manmohan Singh continued the tirade. While stating that war was no solution, he said in Shillong, "I hope some sense will prevail on the leadership of Pakistan to recognise that tackling terrorism is an area that needs cooperation."
"It (Pakistan) has to take action on the demand from all civilised countries that the perpetrators (of Mumbai attacks) are brought to book. We hope that these criminals will be handed over to us to face trial," Singh said.
The dossier contains the detailed confession of the lone terrorist held in the Mumbai terror attack Azam Amir Kasav, photographs and identities of all the terrorists, phone call logs, the GPS device's information and phone call intercepts- everything that has now emerged in the public domain. The evidence, being put together, also includes the logbook recovered from the vessel in which the 10 terrorists came from Karachi, records of satellite phone used by the attackers and transcript of conversations between the attackers and their handlers in Pakistan during the attack, sources said.
The dossier will also include the corroborative evidence tracking the journey of the attackers from Karachi to Mumbai. Investigators have found evidence to show that the terrorists, who struck at Taj Hotel, Trident Hotel and Nariman House on Nov 26, were in touch with their handlers in Karachi even while their three-day engagement with security forces was on.
Meanwhile, home minister P Chidambaram is expected to make his first trip to the US next week in his current capacity. His visit will almost dovetail into Barack Obama's inauguration on Jan 20.
