Speaking to Al-Jazeera TV, Chidambaram said, "...they (the Pakistanis) are not arresting the perpetrators of the Mumbai attacks. They are still on Pakistan soil. We know their names...we have shared their names with them. "
He also said, "They are not investigating the case. The trial hasn"t opened yet. It will be a year on the 26th of November. Therefore, we are thoroughly, totally dissatisfied with the Pakistani response."
When asked if he believed that the Pakistani government and authorities were "deliberately holding up...stifling the investigation," he said, "Yes. Regrettably that is the answer but yes."
