Bring 26/11 attackers to justice, Manmohan tells Zardari

New Delhi: Prime Minister Manmohan Singh raised the issue of Hafeez Saeed, the Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) founder who India feels masterminded the Mumbai attack, in his 40-minute talks with Pakistan President Asif Ali Zardari here Sunday and said it was imperative that perpetrators of the 26/11 terror strike be brought to justice.

"Taking up the issue of terrorism, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh told Pakistan President Asif Ali Zardari that it was imperative that perpetrators of the 26/11 Mumbai terror attack be brought to justice. He also discussed the activities of Hafiz Saeed," India's Foreign Secretary Ranjan Mathai told reporters after the two leaders met here.

The issue would be further discussed during the proposed home secretary level talks between the two countries shortly, he added.

The US has recently announced a bounty of $10 million for the arrest and conviction of Saeed.

Asking Pakistan to take action against Saeed, the Indian home ministry has provided proof of the LeT chief's involvement in the planning and execution of the terror attack to the Pakistan authorities, but Hafiz continues to roam freely delivering hate speeches against India.
