Islamabad, Pakistan - A Pakistani investigation has found that the Mumbai terrorist attack was not planned in Pakistan, the country’s high commissioner in London said.
Wajid Shamsul Hasan said India might have fabricated evidence in a dossier meant to show the operation was based in Pakistan.
“We are not doing any whitewashing business,” Hasan said in an interview with the Indian broadcaster NDTV. “We believe in going about facts. Our findings will be acceptable to the world.”
At least 173 people were killed in November when a small group of armed men raided selected targets in Mumbai, including the Taj and Oberoi Trident hotels and a Jewish community center. Only one of the attackers is known to have survived.
Indian investigators say Mohammad Ajmal Amir Iman revealed under questioning the group had trained in Pakistan and were members of Lashkar-e-Toiba, a group based in Pakistan. Indian officials say members of the Pakistani security service must have known of the operation.
