Pak non-state and state actors behind 26/11: Chidambaram

P Chidambaram
Kolkata, Jul 5: India has conveyed to Islamabad that information from the interrogation of Laskar-e-Taiba (LeT) terrorist Abu Jundal clearly pointed to the involvement of non-state actors and state actors in Pakistan who were behind the 26/11 terror attack in Mumbai, Union Home minister P Chidambaram said here on Thursday.

"Essential information that we have gathered from him (Jundal) clearly points to non-state and perhaps even state actors who were behind 26/11," Chidambaram told a packed press conference here. When asked about the Pakistan Foreign Secretary Jalil Abbas Jilani's denial of involvement of any Pakistani agency in the terror attack, Chidambaram retorted, "I stand by what I have said."

Chidambaram said it was completely wrong to share everything in public, more because Jundal was in the court's custody. "But to the extent it is necessary I have shared with you and the people of India." The minister added, "Jundal was charged in a case, court has remanded him to police custody. Police were interrogating him and they have to file a report in court. But we can't make public everything which we have gathered through interrogation."
