India calls Pakistani trial of Mumbai suspects a ‘facade’

NEW DELHI: India’s home secretary says Pakistan’s efforts to prosecute those behind the 2008 Mumbai attacks are a facade with Islamabad concerned that senior government officials might be implicated. In an interview published in the Wall Street Journal on Monday, GK Pillai said India had provided Pakistan with extensive information on the identities of key conspirators behind the attacks.
Some of the most compelling evidence was garnered from interrogating David Headley, a Pakistani-American who pleaded guilty to surveying the hotels and other targets ahead of the assault. “I don’t think they’re going to do anything about it,” Pillai told the Journal, adding that Pakistan’s moves to advance the case are a “facade” and ignored the people who orchestrated the attacks.
