New Delhi, Sept 15: Union Home Minister P. Chidambaram on Thursday (today) said that there were only 11 unsolved terror cases left out of 48 cases which were being investigated by investigation agencies since 2000.

By addressing the inaugural ceremony of all India conference of directors general and inspectors general of police in New Delhi, Chidambaram said that chargesheets of 38 cases had been filled and some cases were taken over by National Investigation Agency (NIA) for further investigation.

"Out of the 37 cases, convictions have been obtained in eight cases from courts in Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, Gujarat, Delhi, Kolkata, Mumbai and Chandigarh. That leaves 11 unsolved cases," he said.

"This is not a record to be scoffed at, although I agree that we ought to do better and I am sure that the state police forces will do better to investigate, chargesheet and obtain convictions of terrorists," Chidambaram said as a reply to opposition's criticism on unsolved cases.
