Pak virtually rejects India's demand for action against LeT

Warning retaliation against any Indian 'misadventurism', Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf on Saturday virtually rejected New Delhi's demand for action against militant outfit Lashkar-e-Tayiba (LeT) for the attack on Parliament and doubted the evidence given in this regard.

"We will take action against anybody from Pakistan involved in these acts, if at all proved," Musharraf said.

In an interview to state-run Pakistan Television, he wanted evidence that it was a terrorist attack on Parliament.

"Having said this," he remarked "our analysis is that the proof is inadequate at the moment. In fact, there are lot of indications, which may implicate a design behind this operation. So we would like to be very sure."

"We need concrete evidence that if it is a terrorist act."

Musharraf said that there was a degree of rhetoric developing from India through its media.

"I would like to warn that any adventurism against Pakistan on this issue will be met with force. I would like to warn against any precipitate action by the Indian government against Pakistan. This would lead to serious repercussions. We will co-operate as long as there is evidence against any individual or group," he said.

The Pakistani president said he has already condemned the attack and had written to Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee expressing grief and sorrow over the attack.
