US shared credible evidence with Pak on Lakhvi

US said that it had shared "credible evidence" with Pakistan on Lashkar-e-Taiba, LeT, operations commander Zaki ur Rehman Lakhvi's involvement in the 2008 Mumbai terror attack. "The US has provided credible evidence (on Lakhvi) to Pakistan," a senior US official told PTI. The information provided by the US to Pakistan on Lakhvi and others related to the Mumbai terrorist attack is credible, the official said. The information shared by US related to the Mumbai terrorist attack is based on the interrogation of David Headley, who is currently serving jail sentence for his involvement in the attack, and the information gained from him.

"The government of Pakistan has pledged its cooperation in bringing the perpetrators, financiers and sponsors, of the Mumbai terrorist attacks to justice and we urge Pakistan to follow through on that commitment," State Department Spokesperson Jen Psaki said, adding that Pakistan is a critical partner in fight against terrorism.

Lakhvi and six others - Abdul Wajid, Mazhar Iqbal,Hamad Amin Sadiq, Shahid Jameel Riaz, Jamil Ahmed and Younis Anjum - have been charged with planning and executing the Mumbai attack in November, 2008, that claimed 166 lives.

Pakistan is known for its proximity towards terrorists. Pakistan Army and ISI are specialized in training and supporting terrorists. One Pakistan train and support terrorists and on the other side it cries as a victim of terrorism and claim for funds to fight against terrorism and the same funds are used to train and support terrorism. The dubious attitude of Pakistan is condemned the world over.
