CBI director Vijay Shankar has pulled out of talks with Pakistan. He was supposed to lead a delegation to Islamabad next week to hold talks with his Pakistani counterpart in Federal Investigating Agency (FIA). The external affairs ministry of India has taken the decision to send a strong signal to the neighbour whose hand is being seen in the Indian embassy attack in Kabul- the worst in Kabul since the fall of the Taliban. National security adviser M.K. Narayanan has received “pretty good evidence” about the ISI’s involvement in the suicide attack on the Indian embassy. Pakistan is not co-operating in fighting terror and is still harbouring Dawood Ibrahim. At the meeting with the FIA, Shankar was expected to give proof of Dawood’s presence and his whereabouts in Pakistan. The agencies were also slated to discuss drug trafficking and smuggling of fake Indian currency, apart from terror.
