New Delhi: Amid the ongoing deposition of 26/11 terror attack convict David Coleman Headley in a Mumbai court, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and Congress have said that the ball is now in Pakistan’s court to act against the culprits.
“There is no iota of doubt left after this deposition with regard to the involvement of the ISI in providing all sorts of support to these terrorist groups that work against the interest of India. The question is what Pakistan is going to do in terms of the concerns we have had, whether it’s on 26/11, Pathankot or cross border terrorism and that needs to be seen,” BJP spokesperson Nalin Kohli told ANI.
Resonating similar sentiments, Congress leader Pramod Tiwari said, “During the Congress Government, we had clearly said and given information, but it was not accepted at that time by Pakistan. But now, everything has got revealed. The present government should tell Pakistan on the international level that even after all the evidences Hafiz Saeed does not surrender then it won’t be trusted.”
Tiwari further stated that India should now be cautious after getting to know the role of the ISI and the Pakistani Army in the terror attack.
Headley’s deposition, which entered the third day today before the Mumbai court, was delayed due to technical glitch.
In his revelation during the deposition yesterday, Headley said that Pakistan’s spy agency ISI provides financial, moral as well as military support to terror outfits like the LeT, Jaish-e-Mohammad and Hizbul Mujahideen.
On the first day of the deposition, he revealed the sequence of events and planning behind the 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks.
Headley, one of the main conspirators in the 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks, admitted that he had come to the city with a false identity at the behest of his colleague and handler Sajid Mir, a Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) operative. (ANI)
