India to put specific demands relating to terror before Pak
New Delhi: India is likely to put before
Pakistan a set of specific demands relating to terrorism when
their Foreign Secretaries meet next week, the view here being
that its response will determine the future course of such
Expectations from the talks between Foreign Secretary
Nirupama Rao and her Pakistani counterpart Salman Bashir to be
held here on February 25 are "realistic", informed sources
New Delhi will seek voice samples of seven Lashkar-e-
Taiba operatives accused in the Mumbai terror attacks to match
them with telephonic intercepts recorded by Indian security
agencies during the attack by ten Pakistani terrorists on
November 26, 2008.
Voice samples of Zaki-ur-Rehman Lakhvi, Zarar Shah,
Abu Al Qama, Shahid Jamil Riaz, Hamad Amin Sadiq, Younus Anjum
and Jamil Ahmed, all of them chargesheeted in a Pakistani
court, will be sought by the Indian side during the parleys.
Terror emanating from Pakistani soil will be India`s
focus at the talks, with the sources emphasising that the
blasts in Pune had only sharpened that focus.
Ahead of the talks, India has conveyed to Islamabad that
its Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi`s rhetoric will not
create a conducive atmosphere for the discussions. Qureshi
had said it was not Pakistan which had knelt before India for
the sake of talks which were being held at India`s request.
