BeyondHeadlines News Desk

New Delhi: Seeking to dispel the impression that India has gone soft on the 26/11 terror trial by Pakistan, External Affairs Minister S.M. Krishna Wednesday said he last week that he has asked his Pakistani counterpart to act on dossiers on elements linked to the Mumbai terror attack and take “credible action” against Islamist militant leaders such as Hafiz Saeed.

In a statement to the Lok Sabha on talks with Pakistani Foreign Minister Hina Rabbani Khar, Krishna said he asked Pakistan “to investigate the linkages with some elements in the Pakistani security agencies that had emerged from the evidence presented in the Tahawwur Rana trial in the US”.

Last month, a US jury cleared Pakistan-born Canadian Rana of the charge that he helped in the 26/11 Mumbai attack but convicted him of supporting the Lashkar-e-Taiba, the Islamist militant group New Delhi blames for the carnage.
