Asserting that India has been stressing for "credible"
action by Pakistan on evidence provided by New Delhi on those
involved in the 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks, Foreign Secretary
Nirupama Rao said it has been conveyed to the other side.
"We have underlined to Pakistan to take this evidence
and additional evidence on board seriously and take
substantive action in response to what we have conveyed.
"Obviously, this issue will form part of the
discussions with Pakistani government during the forthcomings
visits when I will meet Foreign secretary Salman Bashir and

Malik. Obviously, our concerns on this core issue will be
conveyed and discussed," Rao said.

India recently gave eleventh dossier to Pakistan
containing additional information on those involved in the
terror attacks in 2008, including Jamaat-Ud-Dawa Chief Hafiz
Saeed. It also provided a copy of the court judgement
sentencing Ajmal Kasab, the lone captured terrorist in the
terror attacks, to death.
To a question on increasing incidents of ceasefire
violations from across the border, she termed them as
"unfortunate" and "serious".
"Our concerns have been conveyed to Pakistan on the
rising incidents of infiltrations and firing. These incidents
of unprovoked firing do not contribute to a positive
atmosphere," she said.
In the second ceasefire violation in as many days,
Pakistani troops yesterday fired at a forward outpost along
the International Border (IB) in Jammu where the BSF foiled an
infiltration bid by militants.
