ISLAMABAD -UNS : Senior PML-N leader and former interior minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan on Sunday held India responsible for the stalled trial regrading Mumbai terror attacks.
“Pakistan was subjected to heavy criticism over the Mumbai attacks,” Nisar said, in the backdrops of Nawaz Sharif’s recent interview.
The former minister that India had used the Mumbai attacks to malign Pakistan. “I am privy to all aspects of the case as I was the interior minister,” he said.
The probe into the case was being conducted by Federal Investigation Agency which comes under the Ministry of Interior.
Nisar also blamed India for his aggressive behavior and refusing to cooperate during the investigation into the case. “The lack of cooperation by India was the biggest hurdle in the investigation. India wasn’t interested in a transparent investigation,” he said.
The attack occurred in India, where 90 per cent of the proofs were present but India refused to share those with Pakistan, Nisar remarked.
“We kept on requesting India to cooperate in the case. We have always cooperated with India over information sharing pertaining to all incidents of terrorism,” Nisar added.
“India always shows aggression when it comes to incidents such as that of Kulbushan Jadhav,” he said, referring to the Indian spy facing a death sentence in Pakistan.
