Report on Mumbai probe in 10 days: Rehman Malik

Sunday, January 18, 2009

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan's interior ministry said Saturday it had given its investigators ten days to submit a preliminary report on the Mumbai attacks suspects in the light of Indian information.
Ministry chief Rehman Malik told a news conference here that cases could be registered only on the basis of tangible evidence and more time could be given to the investigators if necessary.

India blames the Pakistan-based Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) militant group for training, equipping and financing the 10 gunmen who used automatic weapons and hand grenades to bring havoc to Mumbai during a siege that lasted 60 hours.

Pakistan has said India had provided some information on January 5 but no evidence. It said it was conducting its own inquiry and had ruled out handing any suspects to India.
Malik said the Indian government could also be requested to provide more information to help the ongoing inquiry in Pakistan.
