Musharraf rules out handing
over terrorists to India

K J M Varma in Islamabad

Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf on Wednesday ruled out handing over any terrorist wanted by India, but said Islamabad would act against them if any credible evidence was provided by New Delhi.

"If there is any allegation against any of the individual, the evidence should be provided to us. The Government of Pakistan will examine the evidence and act against those elements under the law of the land," Musharraf told a meeting of the National Security Council.

Briefing newsmen about the meeting, Pakistan Information Secretary Anwar Mehmood quoted Musharraf as saying that the question of handing over anyone to India does not arise.

Musharraf also told the meeting that "Pakistan wants peace and de-escalation but should a mistake of attacking Pakistan be made they (India) would regret their decision."

Musharraf informed the NSC about the latest position of troops deployment by India. Chairman of Joint Chiefs of Staff Committee Muhammad Aziz and Foreign Secretary Inamul Haq were among those who briefed the meeting about different aspects of the situation.
