‘India expects Pakistan to act swiftly against Saeed’

New York: India expects Pakistan to act swiftly against Hafiz Saeed, chief of the banned JuD and mastermind of the November last terror attacks, External Affairs Minister S.M. Krishna said here.

“India would be interested to see how Pakistan proceeds with reference to the Mumbai terror attacks. He [Saeed] was the brain behind that attack. So I think we expect Pakistan to act swiftly,” he said.

Asked about Pakistan having reportedly put Saeed under house arrest, Mr. Krishna said, “I think there are conflicting reports. I am waiting for a fuller report of the actual position.”

India’s position had always been consistent that those responsible for the Mumbai attacks be brought to justice. “They will have to be dealt with and then brought to justice. I think simply that is the position India has taken and I reiterate that position,” he said. — PTI
