Islamabad, July 18 (ANI): The Pakistan Government has filed a chargesheet against five 26/11 prime accused suspects.

The hearing into the case would begin on July 25 in the special anti-terror court that has been set-up in the Adiala jail for the purpose.

The chargesheet includes the names of Lashkar's operation chief Zakir-ur-Rehman Lakhvi and Jamaat-ud-Dawaa (JuD) chief Hafiz Mohammad Saeed.

Sources said that the names of all of the accused figure in the chargesheet.

It is the first time that Islamabad has admitted the use of its soil and given documentary proof of Pakistani terrorists being involved in the 26/11 carnage.akistan, prior to the filing of the chargesheet, confirmed that it has handed over a fresh 36-page dossier to India regarding the Mumbai attacks.

The dossier reportedly indicates that the Lashkar-e-Toiba (LeT) carried out the Mumbai attacks. It names Lakhvi as the "mastermind" of the attack, and also admits the Pakistan nationality of Ajmal Amir Kasab, the lone surviving terrorist of the Mumbai terror attacks.

The aforementioned admittance on part of Pakistan is believed to be the prime factor behind New Delhi handing over key compensations to Islamabad at Sharm-el-Sheikh.

Meanwhile, Pakistan has rejected the allegations that it is deliberately trying to delay the probe.

Talking to a private television channel, the Foreign Ministry spokesperson said that there was no delay in Mumbai investigations on Islamabad's part.

"There was no delay in probe from our side. Don't doubt our commitment on 26/11 probe," the spokesperson said.(ANI)
