No letter from Ajmal: Pakistan

New Delhi: Pakistan on Wednesday claimed that it had not received any letter from Mohammad Ajmal Amir, the lone terrorist arrested for the Mumbai attacks, seeking legal aid. It also persisted in its denial mode on his Pakistani nationality, saying it needed “incontrovertible” evidence.

“Please don’t give too much importance to newspaper reports. No letter has been delivered to me or to the [Pakistan] High Commission,” Pakistan High Commissioner to India Shahid Malik told Karan Thapar in the ‘India Tonight’ programme of CNBC TV-18. The High Commissioner was asked about Ajmal’s father admitting, after seeing photographs in newspapers and television, that the terrorist is his son. “Not when it comes to dealing with such individuals. We need something which is incontrovertible which cannot be challenged in a court of law,” Mr. Malik said.

Pakistan was not contemplating giving Zaki-ur-Rahman Lakhvi, the alleged mastermind of the Mumbai attacks, access to the FBI for investigation. – PTI
