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
