Pakistan: No Mumbai Suspects Will be Handed Over

  • VOA News

Pakistani Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani said Sunday his country would take action against anyone found to have been involved in the Mumbai attacks, but would not send a Pakistani to India to face charges.

Gilani said Islamabad is studying the evidence received from India and will take necessary action under its own laws.

India has been pressing Pakistan to extradite terror attack suspects.

On Saturday, Pakistan extended the house arrest of the founder of an Islamic charity (Jamaat-ud-Dawa) linked to the Mumbai terrorist attacks.

Hafiz Mohammed Saeed was detained last month after the U.N. Security Council declared the charity a terrorist organization, and accused it of being a front for the banned militant group Lashkar-e-Taiba.

Pakistan has shut down many of the charity's offices and arrested dozens of members.

India blames Lashkar-e-Taiba for the three-day siege in Mumbai that killed more than 170 people.

On Saturday, Pakistan's Crime Investigation Department said it had arrested two people for making fake National Identity Cards for various militant groups.

The authorities said the two were arrested late Friday during a raid at their hideout in Saddar area and that police recovered dozens of fake ID cards.
