Pakistan Prime Minister has accepted that the 26/11 terror strike in Mumbai originated from Pakistan. He said that he wants “something done about the bombers of Mumbai.”
Khan said that his government wanted to prosecute those involved in the terror strike. It was in “Islamabad’s interest to resolve the matter. He also said that he wanted to know the status of the case which is being heard in an anti-terrorism court in Pakistan.
On November 26, 2008, 10 Pakistani terrorists arrived by sea and opened fire indiscriminately, killing 166 and injuring several others, besides damaging property worth hundreds of crores.
“We also want something done about the bombers of Mumbai. I have asked our government to find out the status of the case. Resolving that case is in our interest because it was an act of terrorism,” Imran Khan said in an interview to the Washington Post.
He stated this when asked about the prosecution of the perpetrators of the attacks. The release of LeT’s operations commander Zaki-ur-Rehman Lakhvi is also a big point of contention.
The trial, underway in an anti-terrorism court in Pakistan against seven activists, has not made much headway. The Pakistani establishment has been claiming a lack of enough evidence against them.
On the Indian side though, one of the terrorists caught alive, Ajmal Kasab, was tried and hanged to death.
