Credible evidence shared with Pak on Lakhvi: US
WASHINGTON (Web Desk) – The US has said it shared “credible evidence” with Pakistan on LeT operations commander Zakiur Rehman Lakhvi’s involvement in the 2008 Mumbai terror attack, days after it reminded the country its commitment to bring the perpetrators of the horrific attack to justice.


“The US has provided credible evidence (on Lakhvi) to Pakistan,” a senior US official told Press Trust of India.


The official refused to give any further details and said this was an ongoing legal matter.


But, the information provided by the US to Pakistan on Lakhvi and others related to the Mumbai terror attack is credible, the official said.


The detailed information shared by U.S. on individuals related to the Mumbai terror attack is based on the interrogation of David Headley, who is currently serving jail sentence for his involvement in the attack, and the information gained from him.


Various security agencies and intelligence wings of the U.S. have done their own investigation with regard to the 26/11 attack.


Earlier, the U.S. had said there was a strong counter-terrorism cooperation with Pakistan and it hoped that Islamabad would follow through its commitment on bringing to justice the perpetrators of the attacks.


“The government of Pakistan has pledged its cooperation in bringing the perpetrators — financiers, and sponsors of the Mumbai terrorist attacks to justice and we urge Pakistan to follow through on that commitment,” State Department spokesperson Jen Psaki had said, adding that Pakistan is a critical partner in fight against terrorism.


Lakhvi and six others — Abdul Wajid, Mazhar Iqbal, Hamad Amin Sadiq, Shahid Jameel Riaz, Jamil Ahmed and Younis Anjum — have been charged with planning and executing the Mumbai attack in November, 2008, that claimed 166 lives.
