Pakistan in “denial” over Mumbai carnage: India

December 31, 2008

India on Wednesday said Pakistan was in “denial” over the Mumbai attacks and refusing to acknowledge evidence linking the gunmen who carried out the assault with elements in Pakistan.

“If anyone is in a state of denial, anything that we give will be denied,” Home Minister P. Chidambaram told reporters.

The minister said the Pakistani father of the sole surviving gunman had confirmed to Pakistan television that his son was involved.

“If that is not evidence then what is?” Chidambaram said.

The November attacks in Mumbai left 172 dead, including nine of the gunmen whom India insists were trained by the Pakistan-based Lashkar-e-Taiba militant group and abetted by unnamed Pakistani agencies.

Last week Pakistan’s acting High Commissioner Afrasiab Mehdi Hashmi was summoned to the Indian foreign ministry and given a letter purportedly written by the sole surviving gunman, Mohammed Ajmal Amir Iman.

The letter said he was from Pakistan and that he wanted to meet Pakistan’s top envoy in New Delhi.
