Saeed should be interrogated for 26/11: Chidambaram
Chennai: Home Minister P Chidambaram
on Monday demanded that Pakistan interrogate JuD chief Hafiz
Mohammad Saeed for the Mumbai terror attacks as all the
evidence against him was on its soil.
Reacting to reports that Saeed has been placed under
house arrest, Chidambaram said he has no objection even if it
was a "face-saving technique" by Pakistan.
"My demand is that now that he has been arrested he
should be interrogated on the 26/11 incidents. His role in the
26/11 attacks must be investigated," he told reporters here on
the sidelines of a function here.
"Evidence is in Pakistani soil. When Pakistan says
give us evidence, evidence is not on Indian soil, all the
evidence against Hafiz Saeed is on Pakistani soil," he said.
"Therefore, one must investigate in Pakistan and find
the evidence in Pakistan," he said.
The Home Minister said two FIRs, which were filed
against Saeed on Friday by Pakistani authorities, are
unrelated to 26/11 attacks.
India has been insisting that Pakistan should take
action against Saeed for his role in masterminding the Mumbai
attacks but Pakistani authorities have claimed that the
evidence provided by New Delhi against the JuD chief is not
adequate for arresting or prosecuting him.
