Islamabad, Sep 10: Pakistan cannot take action against outlawed JuD chief Hafiz Mohammed Saeed on the basis of 'hearsay', Interior Minister Rehman Malik said.
Speaking to an interview to The News Daily, he said, "India gave us the latest evidence only 10 days back and we need a few days to evaluate its veracity. We cannot operate on hearsay alone."
When asked about India's criticism on Pakistan government's handling of the issue of Saeed, Malik said: "We respect your courts, you respect ours."
Malik also accused India for not cooperating in the probe into the Mumbai attacks, saying authorities in the neighbouring country had been "dragging their feet all along."
Malik claimed that there were other lapses on India's part, including the refusal to share information about the attack on the Samjhauta Express train in 2007.
