PTI A foreign tourist takes pictures at the CST railway station on the eve of the second anniversary of the 26/11 attacks, in Mumbai on Thursday. India has asked Pakistan to fulfil its commitment to bring perpetrators of Mumbai carnage to justice.

Concerned over the “lack of progress” in the Mumbai terror attacks cases in Pakistan, India on issued a note verbale to Islamabad asking it to fulfil its “obligation and commitment” to bring to justice the perpetrators of the 26/11 carnage.

In a strongly-worded diplomatic note, issued on the eve of Mumbai terror attacks anniversary, India expressed “regret” for not receiving feedback on several issues raised by it, including information on seven persons involved in the attacks given by Home Minister P. Chidambaram during his meeting with his Pakistani counterpart in June in Islamabad, Government sources said.

The names of seven “handlers” involved in the 26/11 included that of two officers in the Pakistani Army.

The sources said New Delhi also reminded Islamabad that there has been no feedback from Pakistan on its request for voice samples of Pakistan-based “handlers” of the 10 terrorists who attacked Mumbai on November 26, 2008 in which 166 people were killed.

“It is a matter of regret,” it said. India has been demanding voice samples of the handlers whose conversations were intercepted while the attack unfolded as this will help in the investigations into the Mumbai terror attacks.

India also pointed out “lack of progress” in the trial of seven Lashker-e-Taiba operatives in Pakistan who were arrested in connection with the 26/11 attacks, sources said.
