New Delhi, May 30: Pakistan has sought 'clarifications' on the 'exact status' of India's 'most wanted' list of 50 terrorists that the Indian government had handed over to it during the Home/Interior Secretary-level talks in March 2011. It can be recollected that Indian agencies caused embarrassment to the country after including the name of two people in the list, who are residing in India.

Reports suggest that the clarifications have been sought through the Pakistan High Commission in New Delhi.

Without trying to further increase India's embarrassment in the matter, Tehmina Janjua, the Pakistan foreign ministry spokeswoman said, "It is an Indian list; it is up to the Indians to decide who to put on it. Obviously anything that is given to us, we will look at it seriously. In the context of looking at any such issue seriously, we have referred to the Indian ministry of external affairs the request seeking clarification about the exact status of the list."

While no official reaction has been given by the Indian government, G K Pillai, the Home Secretary has said, "The review of the entire list which was handed over is being currently undertaken by the CBI, the NIA and various agencies. As soon as they are completed, if there are any corrections to be made, we will make that and then communicate the same to the Pakistani side."

He was speaking on the sidelines of a BSF function at New Delhi on May 28.
