Pakistan gives another 26/11 dossier to India

Saturday, November 6, 2010

ISLAMABAD - Pakistan Friday handed over to India its 13th dossier on the 2008 Mumbai terror attack, a day before US President Barack Obama’s India visit.

Rahul Kulshreshth, deputy high commissioner of India in Islamabad, was called to the Foreign Office Friday by Director General (South Asia) Afrasiab and handed over ‘Pakistan’s Dossier No.13′ about the Mumbai terror attack, in which at least 166 people were killed.

He was also provided detailed information on Pakistan’s proposal to send a commission to India that would record the statements of the key witnesses.

The foreign office requested the Indian government to facilitate the visit of the proposed commission, a press communique said.

Ten gunmen sneaked into Mumbai from Pakistan in November 2008 and let loose a reign of terror. Nine of the heavily-armed gunmen were killed by security forces while the tenth, Ajmal Amir Kasab, was arrested. The terror strike put a tremendous strain on the ties between India and Pakistan.

Pakistan handed over the dossier Friday, a day before Obama arrives in India on a four-day trip. Obama, who arrives in Mumbai Saturday, will stay overnight at the Taj, one of the major sites of the terror attack.
