Won't ever allow Pak to wish away justice in 26/11 case: India

India talks tough to Pak on 26/11
New Delhi, Nov 28: India on Thursday made it clear that it will "not ever" allow Pakistan to "wish away" its deeply felt national sentiment that perpetrators of 2008 Mumbai attacks should be brought to book and asked it to act expeditiously as "99 per cent evidence" was available there.

"Whether India will allow to wish away what is a deeply, deeply felt national sentiment that perpetrators of 26/11 should be brought to book, that we will never allow that wish list to happen, not now, not later, not ever," the Ministry of External Affairs Spokesperson said here.

He was asked about the recent remark of the new lawyer of the seven Pakistani suspects charged with involvement in the Mumbai terror attack in Islamabad that the evidence provided by India was a "sham".

Our firm belief is that 99 per cent of the evidence is in Pak

"The dossiers provided by India is information and not evidence as needed by the court. The evidence provided by India is a sham," Raja Rizwan Abbasi, counsel for Lashkar-e-Taiba commander Zakiur Rehman Lakhvi and six other accused, told a news conference there.

The Spokesperson said during the discussions between India and Pakistan which included the recent talks during the visit of Pakistan Prime Minister's Foreign Affairs Advisor Sartaj Aziz to Delhi, India has been "assured repeatedly that what all they wanted was provided to them".

He further added, "It is our firmly held belief that 99 per cent of the evidence on 26/11 case is available in Pakistan because this conspiracy was hatched in Pakistan."

"The people who undertook this were nationals of Pakistan, the training for this attack was undertaken in Pakistan and the financing for this attack was there," he said and asked Pakistan to act on it.
