Pakistan again seeks joint probe into Parliament attack

K J M Varma in Islamabad

Despite Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee's rejection of its offer, Pakistan on Wednesday night officially requested India to agree for a joint probe to investigate the allegations of the involvement of Inter-Services Intelligence and two Pak-based militant groups in the attack on Parliament.

Pakistan also denied reports of a build up of its troops on the Line of Control.

Diplomatic sources in Islamabad said Pakistan foreign office formally informed the Indian High Commission officials on Wednesday that it wanted to be part of investigations for an 'impartial determination' of evidence.

Pakistan's request was mentioned while handing over a demarche to the Indian High Commission officials who were summoned to the foreign office.

This was the second demarche by Pakistan in five days.

Pakistan presented its first demarche on Saturday last, which was a reply to the demarche given by Foreign Secretary Chokila Iyer a day before demanding action against the Pakistan-based militant outfits Jaish-e-Mohammed and Lashkar-e-Tayiba.
