India said the pressure put on Pakistan by world leaders over last month’s attacks on Mumbai was inadequate and handed over a letter allegedly written by a surviving gunman to Islamabad. Indian foreign ministry spokesman Vishnu Prakash said Pakistan’s acting High Commissioner Afrasiab Mehdi Hashmi was summoned to the ministry and given the letter purportedly written by Mohammed Ajmal Amir Iman.
“In his letter, Kasab says he is a Pakistani national and that he wants to meet the Pakistan high commissioner” (ambassador) in India, the Press Trust of India added. A ministry official told a photocopy of Iman’s original letter had been handed over. Foreign Minister Pranab Mukherjee meanwhile said he wanted to see more results from US-led attempts to force Pakistan to co-operate with the probe into the attacks, which India blames on Pakistan-based militants.
