Strict action should be taken against 26/11 attack perpetrators: Congress

New Delhi: Taking cognizance of the statement made by Pakistan’s former national security advisor Mahmud Ali Durrani, the Congress on Monday said strict action should be taken against the terrorists involved in the heinous act.

Congress leader Shobha Oza said the Indian Government has always claimed Pakistan’s involvement in the 26/11 Mumbai attacks, but Pakistan always denied it.

“Now, if Pakistan is accepting it, strong action should be taken against those terrorists involved in the act,” Oza told ANI.

Earlier today, Durrani said the November 26, 2008 terror attack in Mumbai was carried out by a terror group based in Pakistan, adding that it was a classic trans-border terrorist event.

“26/11 Mumbai attack carried out by a terror group based in Pakistan is a classic trans-border terrorist event,” he said.

Durrani also added that Jamaat-ud-Dawa chief Hafiz Saeed had no utility and Pakistan should act against him.

Mahmud Ali Durrani, a retired army general, was the National Security Advisor to the Pakistani government when 10 Pakistani terrorists sneaked into Mumbai after hijacking a boat and killed at least 164 people and wounding 308 across the city. (ANI)
