MK: Pak has sent queries on dossier

By Special Correspondent,  The Asian Age.

With agency inputs

New Delhi

Feb. 1: Pakistan is probing the Mumbai terror attacks in a manner an investigating agency “should proceed” and has sent two sets of questions on India’s dossier handed over to it, one of which has already been replied to, national security adviser M.K. Narayanan has been quoted as saying.

“What I am aware of is that after the receipt of the dossier by Pakistan, the Pakistan government has reverted to us and asked a number of questions to which answers have been provided,” Mr Narayanan was quoted by agencies as saying in an interview on the private TV channel CNN-IBN.

He was responding to a query on Pakistan high commissioner to Britain Wajid Shamsul Hasan’s recent statement in which Mr Hasan had said that Pakistani soil was not used for planning the Mumbai terror strikes.

Mr Narayanan said, “I assume that they are yet to receive a reply to the second set of queries they have made. So, I don’t know what the Pakistan high commissioner in London is talking about. I can only say that it is part of the dysfunctional manner in which several things are taking place in that country.”

When contacted by this newspaper, Mr Narayanan said he had nothing further to add to what he had already said.

Meanwhile, speaking to reporters in Berhampore, external affairs minister Pranab Mukherjee reiterated his earlier position on the issue that Pakistan has not responded on the Indian dossier. He, however, said, India is ready to share more information with Pakistan if Islamabad wants any more dossiers to further its investigation of the attack.

Mr Mukherjee re-emphasised that Pakistan has not given any report to India on its probe into the terror strikes and that a lot of reports have appeared in the media in this regard. “But Islamabad has not replied to the dossier that India had officially given to that country,” he said. As diplomatic relations between the two countries were on, official channels should be used, Mr Mukherjee claimed.

Asked if he was satisfied with the Pakistani response to the dossier, Mr Narayanan said, “I don’t know what the word satisfied (means) but certainly they appear to be taking things seriously and at least they are proceeding in a manner that one would expect an investigating agency to proceed, asking queries (sic) and not taking everything that is given at the face value that has been given.” He was quoted as saying, “So it is good news from our point of view. (But) whether after all this they would still accept the truth that will kind of hit them in the face, that I don’t know.”

Moreover, Mr Narayanan was quoted by agencies as telling the channel, “We have provided them with the dossier. They have reverted with certain queries, we have replied to their queries and I presume that they will have more questions and we will assist them. We have taken what I call a very conscious policy of saying if they wish us to assist in their investigations, we will do the utmost. What their response is going to be — from the kind of flip-flops that we have seen from time, I cannot say.”

“If Pakistan is honest in its intention, if Pakistan believes that terrorism needs to be stamped out from their country and those elements that have been spreading terrorism elsewhere, then it is very simple matter — handing over those who have been named in the FIR. That is how the country that believes in helping each other acts (sic),” he said.

Mr Narayanan said, “We feel there is no reason why they (Indian citizens who are fugitives in Pakistan) should not be extradited and sent to India. I agree in the case of Pakistani citizens, the issue is a bigger one, but if they have been accused in a crime which has been of this magnitude or gravity, I think it is in the interest of Indo-Pak relationship (that they should be sent to India)… We are only asking for a trial. We are not asking for them to be put before a firing squad or something. This is reasonable.”

Mr Narayanan’s disclosure that Pakistan has reverted to India with regard to dossier about Mumbai terror attacks appears to have generated confusion.
