New Delhi: India on Wednesday expressed disappointment over Pakistan's continued claim that it was not being given evidence about involvement of Jamaat-ud-Dawa chief Hafiz Saeed in Mumbai terror attacks and said the material given to Islamabad was "more than enough" to arrest him.

"I was disappointed when I heard him (Pakistan's Interior Minister Rahman Malik) say that evidence was still not being presented to Pakistan and what is worse when he said we (Islamabad) are not responsible if something happens in the future," Home Minister P Chidambaram told reporters here.

He said if Pakistan government consulted any lawyer, he would advise them that "the evidence given in the series of dossiers is more than enough to arrest Hafiz Saeed, for example, to set up Special Investigation Team, and if they follow all the leads given in these dossiers and bring charges against him."

Chidambaram termed as "not very encouraging" the comments made by Malik.

"I am very surprised," he said adding "such statement is not at all expected from such a responsible minister of a government which is being forced to concede that the attack was planned in Pakistan soil and executed by Pakistani citizens."
