New Delhi: India is expected to share a dossier on 26/11 plotter Abu Jundal's links with Pakistani state actors during the meet of foreign Secretaries of the two countries to be held in New Delhi on Wednesday. Pakistan's Foreign Secretary Jalil Abbas Jilani is in New Delhi for talks with his Indian counterpart.
The home ministry provided copies of Jundal's Pakistani passport - that shows him as a resident of the Punjab in Pakistan - and two identity cards, issued in the name of Riasat Ali.
India will provide these documents to Pakistan as a direct proof that Jundal had state help.
India is also expected to renew its demand for voice samples of the 26/11 accused Zaki-ur-Rehman Lakhvi, Abu al Qama and Abdul Wajid, who were present in the Lashkar-e-Taiba control room directing the attackers. India will again ask Pakistan to speed up the 26/11 trial and pursue suspected mastermind Hafiz Saeed.
Pakistan's foreign secretary Jalil Abbas Jilani arrived in New Delhi on Tuesday and stressed that he has been given the mandate to carry forward the dialogue process with India. He asked India to share evidence about Abu Jundal's role in the Mumbai attack and offered help in the fight against terror.
In a move calculated to provoke India, Jilani, however, met leading Kashmiri separatists, including Hurriyat leader Syed Ali Shah Geelani, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq and Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front chief Yasin Malik later. He assured them that he will take up the Kashmir issue in talks with his Indian counterpart Ranjan Mathai Wednesday.
Mathai and Jilani will begin two-day talks today that will also focus on issues like peace and security including confidence-building measures, Jammu and Kashmir, and the promotion of friendly exchanges.
The agenda of the foreign-secretary talks had been fixed well in advance, but in the wake of the disclosures made by Abu Jundal, an Indian key 26/11 plotter with suspected links to Pakistani militants and Pakistani state actors, terrorism is set to become the main focus.
