Karachi, Feb.14 (ANI): Two days after admitting the use of its soil for plotting the Mumbai terror attacks, Pakistan has now said that it can demand the handing over of Ajmal Amir Kasab,the lone surviving Mumbai terrorist, from India.
Addressing a press conference here, Pakistan Prime Minister,Yusuf Raza Gilani's Advisor on the Interior Rahman Malik said Islamabad could ask India to hand over Kasab for further investigations in the Mumbai terror attacks.
"India could be asked for handing over of Ajmal Kasab for investigation process," Malik said adding, "It would be premature to say anything relating to the handing over of Kasab."e said Kasab's name was included in the FIR filed by Pakistan, and he may be needed for further proceedings in the case.
