With relations between India and Pakistan steadily getting back to normalcy, New Delhi is hoping to resolve the stalemate over securing voice samples of Pakistan-based handlers of 26/11terror attack.
Union home minister Sushilkumar Shinde said on Saturday that India could soon expect to get the voice samples. Pakistan so far has refused to provide the voice samples of 26/11 perpetrators, including Hafiz Saeed. Pakistan’s stubbornness had even resulted in former Union home minister P Chidambaram taking a stand not to meet his counterpart Rehman Malik till Pakistan agreed to give the samples.
Highly placed sources said India is expected to suggest Islamabad to use public statement/speeches of Hafiz Saeed to testify his voice over samples that were intercepted by the Indian agencies during 26/11 terror attacks.
Indian security establishment thinks that this method can be used by Pakistan’s Federal Investigation Agency to match the voice samples to nail Hafiz Saeed complicity in the 26/11 and the obtained result can also be shared with India.
India has been maintaining for long that Saeed, Jamaat-ud-Dawaa’s chief and Lashkar-e-Toiba’s (LeT) founder was the kingpin in not only hatching 26/11 terror attacks’ devious plan but had also actively participated in giving instruction to 10 terrorists from the Karachi control room who had gone on a rampage in Mumbai.
