Boucher will meet Foreign Secretary Shivshankar Menon and the two sides will deliberate on how Pakistan-based perpetrators of the Mumbai strikes can be brought to justice.
Boucher has bluntly told Pakistani authorities that Mumbai attackers had links in Pakistani soil and Islamabad [Images] should pursue these and track down the perpetrators of the terror strikes.
India has already given to Pakistan a dossier of evidence about involvement of LeT whose 10 heavily-armed terrorists came from Karachi to launch attacks in Mumbai on November 26.
The dossier includes confession of Ajmal Amir Kasab [Images], the lone terrorist arrested during the Mumbai attacks, and material and technical evidence.
Boucher has said the US has a 'direct interest' in the probe as six of its citizens were killed in the Mumbai attacks.
The Federal Bureau of Investigation of the US also has conducted a separate probe into the attacks. The FBI has questioned Kasab and also has other technical evidence regarding involvement of Pakistan-based terrorists in the attacks.
