With the Pakistani link being suspected in the deadly Mumbai terror attacks, Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani [Images] has called a special meeting of his Cabinet to discuss the situation arising out of this development, particularly its impact on the Indo-Pak relations.

The Cabinet meeting is to be held shortly, hours after the Pakistan government did a volte face on its decision to send the chief of the powerful Inter-Services Intelligence, Shuja Pasha, to India in connection with the attacks in Mumbai.
Pakistan has now announced that a representative of theISI would visit India instead of the spy agency's chief. Gilani also sent his special aircraft to India to bring back Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi to enable him to attend the special Cabinet meeting.
Prime Minister Manmohan Singh [Images], indicating involvement of Pakistani elements in the Mumbai strikes, said on Thursday that India would not tolerate use of territories of its neighbours for launch of attacks against it.
