Terrorists find sanctuary in Pakistan: India

NEW DELHI: Referring to Al Qaida chief Osama Bin Laden's killing in an US operation "deep inside Pakistan", India on Monday said: "This fact underlines our concern that terrorists belonging to different organisations find sanctuary in Pakistan. We believe that the perpetrators of the Mumbai terror attack, including the controllers and handlers of the terrorists who actually carried out the attack, continue to be sheltered in Pakistan".

The ministry said that the United States Government informed the Government of India earlier on Monday that Bin Laden had been killed by security forces somewhere "deep inside Pakistan."

It said: "After the September 11, 2001 terror attack, the US had reason to seek Osama Bin Laden and bring him and his accomplices to justice".

In a statement Union home ministry said, "We once again call upon the Government of Pakistan to arrest the persons whose names have been handed over to the Interior Minister of Pakistan as well as provide voice samples of certain persons who are suspected to be among the controllers and handlers of the terrorists".

India on US operation against Osama Bin Laden said: "We take note with grave concern that part of the statement in which President Obama said that the fire fight in which Osama Bin Laden was killed took place in Abbotabad deep inside Pakistan ".
