He said, "If New Delhi wanted some credible action, they need to provide substantiated evidence," the minister said, adding Saeed could not be arrested on the basis of mere statements.

The statements came just days after India and Pakistan endorsed a joint statement in which New Delhi agreed to de-link Composite Dialogue from Islamabad"s action against terror, on the pretext that Pakistan was beginning to get serious with the Mumbai terror attack trial.
