NEW DELHI - A day before the second anniversary of the Mumbai terror attacks, India Thursday regretted lack of substantial progress in the 26/11 probe and pressed Pakistan for a time-bound fulfiliment of its pledge to bring the perpetrators of the carnage to justice.
Regretting the lack of substantive and verifiable progress” in the 26/11 probe despite India’s extensive cooperation in the ongoing trial and investigation in Pakistan, New Delhi sent a strongly-worded message to Islamabad.
India has once again called upon Pakistan to fulfil its stated commitment to bring all the perpetrators of the Mumbai terrorist attacks to justice and unravel the larger conspiracy behind the attacks, the external affairs ministry said in a statement.
A time-bound fulfillment of its stated commitments by Pakistan would not only go a long way towards building trust and confidence between the two countries but would also be a reflection of Pakistans commitment to combat terrorism comprehensively, the ministry said.
India made it clear that the lack of tangible progress in delivering on this vital commitment is increasingly being viewed in the Indian public opinion as dilatory and lacking in seriousness.
