FIRs against Hafiz Saeed not credible enough: India
NEW DELHI: India’s National Security Adviser MK Narayanan on Sunday questioned the credibility of the first information reports (FIRs) Pakistan has filed against Hafiz Saeed, the alleged mastermind of last year’s Mumbai attacks.
During an interview with Karan Thapar for CNN-IBN, he said the FIRs did not add any credibility to Pakistan’s commitment to act.
“If you take the Saeed dossier that has been provided to Pakistan, I think we have marshalled what I would call grade-1 evidence. You have the evidence from three people, three human beings, three admitted terrorists – Kasab, Fahim Ansari, Soharabuddin – who talked of what Saeed had come [to] talk to them [about], what he had said.”
“This is apart from other connecting evidence. I agree one can never be sure as to what a court would do with that kind of evidence, but if you are not even willing to test that, it certainly leaves a big question mark about where Pakistan stands on terrorism,” he added. “I think the latest one doesn’t really add any credibility in my opinion,” he said. daily times monitor
