“After David Hadley's revelations, it has become very clear that Pakistan and ISI were behind the 26/11 attacks. (David Headley ke bayan ke baad ye cheez poori tarah se spasht ho chuki hai ki isme ISI ka hath hai, Pakistan ka hath hai,” the home minister told reporters here.
“Pakistan should now quickly act to punish all those involved in the 26/11 carnage. (Itna expose ho jaane ke baad turant Pak ko 26/11 ke culprits ke khilaaf kathor karwai karni chahiye),” Singh said.
Concurring with the home minister, the Ministry of External Affairs said, “Headley's deposition once again confirms this view, if any confirmation was needed after Ajmal Kasab's confession.”
“It is up to Pak to investigate and expose fully the conspiracy in Pak behind the Mumbai terror attack and to bring all concerned to justice,” the MEA said.
