Chidambaram asserts 26/11 originated from Pak soil
Kollam/Mumbai (PTI): Union Home Minister P Chidambaram on Monday said India had no doubt that Mumbai terror attack originated from Pakistan soil and dismissed as "rubbish" media reports suggesting that according to Islamabad the 26/11 plot was hatched in Bangladesh or Europe.
"There is no doubt that Mumbai terrorist attack was planned and executed from Pakistan's soil. We have given the dossier to hundred countries. Nobody has expressed any doubt on it", Chidambaram told reporters in Kollam in Kerala.
He said India was awaiting Pakistan's response to the dossier it had submitted.
Later talking to newsmen in Mumbai after a meeting reviewing the security situation in Maharashtra, Chidambaram again spoke of India waiting for a reply.
"We have given them a dossier. Let them respond to it. I will comment after they give the response," he said.
"It is all rubbish," was Chidambaram's response when asked about Pakistani media reports which indicated that according to Pakistan, the 26/11 plot was hatched in Bangladesh or Europe.
"Pakistan has not told you nor me. Don't go by newspaper reports," he added.
Chidambaram also said that US' Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) will give evidence, if necessary, in the 26/11 terror attacks trial.
"Our investigation has been helped by FBI. If necessary, FBI will give evidence in the trial."
