Islamabad, June 21 (ANI): Pakistan Interior Minister Rehman Malik is likely to hold a separate meeting with his Indian counterpart P Chidambaram on the sidelines of the third SAARC interior ministers' meeting scheduled to be held in Islamabad on June 26.

According to sources, during the meeting, both the ministers would discuss the new dossier concerning the November 2008 Mumbai terror attacks that India recently handed over to Pakistan.

Pakistan is also expected to raise the issue of India's alleged involvement in the Balochistan insurgency, The Daily Times reports.

The three-day SAARC conference was scheduled to be held in Islamabad from February 18 to 20, but was postponed.

It was then rescheduled for February 26 to 28, but was postponed again, as the Nepalese Home Minister Bhim Rawal expressed his unavailability on the said dates.

The member countries were then planning to meet on March 10, but the Sri Lankan government expressed its reservation over the date. (ANI)
