New Delhi, Aug 26: Criticizing Pakistan's slow action against 26/11 offenders, Indian External Affairs Minister S M Krishna on Wednesday, Aug 26 asked the Pakistan government to take fast action against Hafiz Saeed, founder of Lashkar-e- Taiba.

On Tuesday, Aug 25, Interpol issued a Red Corner Notice against Saeed, and Zaki -ur- Rehman Lakhvi who are considered the masterminds of 26/11.

The notice was issued after a Mumbai court issued non-bailable warrants against both terrorists. Speaking to newsmen here Krishna said, "Interpol's Red Corner Notice on Saeed is the vindication of what India says. The perpetrators of Mumbai attack will have to be brought to be justice. We have painstakingly collected evidence to convey the involvement of the persons."

He termed Pakistan's rejection of India's fifth dossier as unfortunate.

"It is very unfortunate that the Pakistan has rejected the dossier, but at the same time Interpol has given a Red Corner Notice. I think the world should take note of these developments and come to their own conclusion," Krishna said.

Pakistan's Interior Minister Rehman Malik said on Tuesday that if India does not provide tangible information on the 26/11 attacks and the Samjhauta Express tragedy, Islamabad would not be responsible for any future terrorist attacks in India.

Krishna, however, added that India would continue to impress on Pakistan to act on terrorist organizations.

India had also sent proof and request for issuing Red Corner Notice against Lashkar commander Zarar Shah and Abu Al Qama.

Interpol is said to be analyzing the evidences, which have been posted against them.
