The US will continue to press Pakistan to take action against the terrorists who attacked Mumbai last year, new US ambassador to India
Tim Roemer said.In his first interaction with journalists after presenting credentials on Tuesday, Roemer said, “The al-Qaida, the Taliban, Lashkar-e-Taiba… we have a common enemy with India. And we are pressing Pakistan hard on the Mumbai suspects.”Roemer was a key member of the 9/11 Commission in the US Congress that investigated the World Trade Center attacks.
But the question is how much Govt of Pakistan is involved with this case , let me remember you the story again
Story of Kasab
Mohammed Ajmal Kasab, 21, confessed last month to taking part in the three-day November siege that paralyzed India’s financial capital and killed 166 people. The court, however, ordered that the trial against him continue because his statement did not address all the charges.
On next Friday, the Pakistani said he wanted to plead guilty to all the charges, which range from murder to conspiracy to wage war against India.
Judge M.L. Tahiliyani, who heads the special court trying Kasab, asked him to discuss his plans with his lawyer before making any decisions.
Minutes later, Kasab returned to court to say he had changed his mind and his earlier confession would stand.
In his confession, Kasab admitted spraying gunfire into the crowds at Mumbai’s main train station, but denied killing four policemen, whose deaths remain touchstones of grief and anger in India.
This is not the first time Kasab has reversed himself in court. Last month, he pleaded not guilty to the 86 charges. A short while later, he unexpectedly confessed.
Kasab said Lashkar-e-Taiba, a militant group formed in the 1980s with the alleged blessing of Pakistan’s intelligence services, was behind the attack. That supported India’s charges that Pakistan is not doing enough to clamp down on terrorist groups.
Not Enough Evidence Against Pakistan
in Islamabad, foreign office spokesman Abdul Basit said the documentation provided by India is insufficient to prosecute.
He, however, said the government has its own judicial and legal system which will follow its course to bring the suspected perpetrators of the Mumbai attacks to books.
India alleges Hafiz Saaed is the mastermind of the November 2008 Mumbai attacks. Relations between India and Pakistan have been severely strained since the attacks and the composite dialogue process has come to a virtual standstill.
Police Killed in Mumbai attack
Four top police officials, including Mumbai Police Anti-Terrorism Squad (ATS) chief Hemant Karkare, were among the 10 policemen killed as security forces took on terrorists here in the early hours of Thursday, authorities said.
Other Case of Hemant Karkare
On September 29, 2008, three bombs exploded in Modasa, Gujarat and Malegaon, Maharashtra killing eight persons, and injuring 80. Several unexploded bombs were found in Ahmedabad, Gujarat. Hemant Karkare, as the chief of the state Anti-Terror Squad, led the investigation into the 2008 Malegoan blasts. In late October the ATS arrested eleven suspects, and alleged that some radical Hindu groups were behind the blasts.
Opposition parties, including the Bharatiya Janta Party and Shiv Sena, and Hindu organizations alleged that the arrests were made under the pressure of the incumbent government, in an attempt to appease India’s Muslim population.Some BJP, RSS and VHP leaders accused the ATS of being used as a tool to attack the Sangh Parivar and of using illegal detention and torture.
