India to give dossier on Abu Jundal during Indo-Pak talks

July 03, 2012 18:44 IST

India will give Pakistan a dossier on LeT terrorist Syed Zabiuddin Ansari, alias Abu Jundal, during Indo-Pak Foreign Secretary-level talks in New Delhi on Wednesday including the passport issued by Pakistan indicating the involvement of state agencies of that country.

Official sources said copies of the Pakistani passport and Pakistan's domestic identity cards issued to Jundal in the name of Riyasat Ali will be given to the visiting delegation.

India will also ask Pakistan to find out how such crucial national documents were issued to Jundal and to find out who were behind providing passport and the two ID cards to Jundal, the key handler of the terrorists involved in 26/11 attacks in Mumbai.

Jundal's Pakistani passport, which is valid till 2014, enabled him to travel to Saudi Arabia from Pakistan.

India will also hand over a list of Jundal's Pakistani contacts given by him during his sustained interrogation by the security agencies.

However, sources said, only those information will be shared with Pakistan which will not hamper the ongoing probe to unravel the conspiracy into the country's worst terrorist attack that claimed 166 lives.

India will again place its demand for voice samples of 26/11 accused, including LeT founder Hafiz Saeed and the outfit's operational commander Zakiur Rehman Lakhvi. This has special significance in the light of the confessional statement of Jundal who has given ample information related to 26/11 attack.

However, India is not expecting much from Pakistan which is yet to act against those involved in the Mumbai attacks.

"Providing more evidence will not serve any purpose.

Usually, evidence is shared when a criminal is prosecuted in another country. But we have not seen any such intention of Pakistan so far," a source said.

The home ministry has already briefed the external affairs ministry on the issues to be flagged during Wednesday's foreign secretary-level talks.
