Karachi, Mar 1: A day after Pakistan's denial of India's report on Mumbai attacks, Pakistan's Navy Chief, Admiral Noman Bashir took back his statement that Azam Amir Kasav did not take the sea route and said that he agreed on the Pakistan's Interior Ministry's report that nine terrorists had sailed from Karachi to launch the strikes.
"We have not been directly involved in the investigation, which is under the domain of the Interior Ministry. Therefore they are better equipped, they have better knowledge and information," he said.
Pakistan's Interior Minister had on Feb 12 admitted in response to the dossier that Mumbai attacks were partly planned from Pakistan's soil and launched from its shores. Pakistan had also arrested six terrorists in this connection. Malik had said nine terrorists had travelled in three boats from Karachi to Mumbai.
The Admiral said that he will not contradict and whatever evidence the Interior Ministry has is correct.
