New Delhi, Jun 21: India is expected to cite the filing of the charge sheet in Samjhauta Express blast case and ask Pakistan to reciprocate by taking action against the 26/11 accused during the upcoming Foreign Secretary level talks.

Official sources said the naming of suspected right- wing extremist Swami Aseemanand and four others in the charge sheet of the 2007 Samjhauta Express case is expected to be shared with Pakistan during this week's talks where New Delhi will press for strong action against those involved in the Mumbai terror attack.

Pakistan has been keenly monitoring the progress of the probe into the Samjhauta Express explosions where 68 people, most of them Pakistani nationals, were killed.

During the Indo-Pak Home Secretary level talks in March, India had provided information on the Samjhautha blast case investigation.

It was also agreed at the dialogue that after filing of report in the court, updated information will be shared with the Pakistani authorities concerned.

"By filing the charge sheet, India has demonstrated its sincerity in tackling the terror of any form. Now, it is Pakistan's responsibility to show its commitment to deal with terrorists and terror groups," a source said.
