Pak seeks clarification on errors in India`s list

Pakistan has sought a clarification from India regarding errors in a list of 50 most wanted terrorists and criminals that New Delhi had asked Islamabad to hand over, Foreign Office spokesperson Tehmina Janjua has said.



Islamabad: Pakistan has sought a clarification from India regarding errors in a list of 50 most wanted terrorists and criminals that New Delhi had asked Islamabad to hand over, Foreign Office spokesperson Tehmina Janjua has said.

Pakistan will look "seriously" at any such list that is given to it by India, Janjua said.

"In the context of looking at any such issue
seriously, we have referred to the Indian Ministry of External
Affairs the request seeking clarification about the exact
status of the list," she said.

To the embarrassment of India`s Home Ministry and
security agencies, it recently emerged that two men on the
list of 50 most wanted fugitives were in India.

The list, handed over to Pakistan earlier this year,
included the names of five Pakistani army officers linked to
the 2008 Mumbai attacks.

Though there had been a "great deal of discussion
within the media" on the list due to the errors in it, it was
"an Indian list" and "it is up to the Indians to decide who to
put on it", Janjua told a news briefing at the Foreign Office
yesterday.

A Pakistani news agency believed to have close links
with intelligence agencies had recently reported that the
Interior Ministry had rejected the Indian list but Janjua
evaded a question on this issue.

Responding to another question on Indian Home Minister
P Chidambaram`s remarks that Pakistan had become a "fragile
state", Janjua said: "As I have said repeatedly in these press
briefings, we do not intend to send messages through the
media. Pakistan is a strong state and Pakistanis a very
resilient nation a nation that is committed to building a
bright future."
