Pakistan's report on its probe into the dossier provided by India on the Mumbai terror attacks was on Monday examined in Islamabad [Images], by a top level cabinet committee, headed by Pakistan Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani [Images], before being handed over to New Delhi [Images].

The meeting of the defence committee of the cabinet was attended among others by Inter-Services Intelligence chief Ahmad Shuja Pasha, the three services chiefs, including Army Chief Ashfaq Parvez Kayani.

Top officials of the interior and the foreign ministry were present at the meeting that was also attended by Defence Minister Choudhury Ahmed Mukhtar.

Media reports had on Sunday said that the Pakistan government may file cases against five Pakistanis, including Ajmal Amir Kasab [Images], the lone terrorist captured for the Mumbai attacks.

Reports have also said that the interior ministry's report states that the attacks were planned not in Pakistan or India but in an European country.

Gilani has said that the government will finalise its response to the Indian dossier after the report is examined by the defence committee of the cabinet.

The law ministry has already vetted the report and forwarded it to the prime minister's office.
