Pak rejects Indian evidence against Hafiz Saeed
New Delhi, Apr 27: Pakistan has rejected India's evidence against LeT founder and suspected 26/11 Hafiz Saeed, on the ground that the Indian evidence cannot be used under their laws for prosecution.

Sources said that in its dossiers seeking extradition of Ajmal Amir Kasab, Pakistan has asked New Delhi to hand over all the additional evidence related to 26/11 to it by the middle of May.

In its response to the three dossiers given by India, Pakistan has said that all the evidence given by India was not credible and was insufficient to prosecute any individual in a Pakistani court.

Stating that the evidence given by India against Saeed and others accused in 2008 Mumbai terror attacks was mainly based on Kasab's confessional statement, Pakistan said that the evidence were not admissible under Pakistan law.

Pakistan has dismissed  India's claims about Pakistan Army Major and dreaded terrorist Ilyas Kashmiri's role in the 26/11 attacks as just a "figment of imagination".

Pakistan's response to the dossier was handed over Indian Deputy High Commissioner Rahul Kulshreshth by Foreign Office Foreign Office officials on Monday, Apr 26.

In a dossier given to India, Pakistan has asked for the handing over of Kasab, so that his confessional statement can used against the LeTs operations commander Zakiur Rehman Lakhvi and six other suspects in the ongoing 26/11 trail in Pakistan.

In its request Pakistan has asked that three Indian officials, including two magistrates and an investigator, be permitted to travel to Pakistan to testify that they had recorded Kasab's statement.
