Islamabad: Interior Minister Rehman Malik on Friday said that India had provided Pakistan a report on the
probe into the 2007 bombing of the Samjhauta Express, the
cross-border train but declined to give details.

Malik made the remarks while interacting with reporters
outside parliament.

He did not say when India provided the report, which was
being examined by the Interior Ministry.

The report would be made public at the appropriate time,
he said.

Official sources said that India had shared the findings
of its probe into the attack on the Samjhauta Express during
the meeting of the Interior and Home Secretaries of Pakistan
and India in New Delhi last month.

The Indian side also told Pakistan it would provide
updated information after the report on the investigation was
filed in court.

Nearly 70 people, including 42 Pakistanis, were killed in
the attack on the cross-border train on 18 February 2007.
