India Thursday asked Pakistan to hand over 26/11 attack mastermind and founder of Lashker-e-Taiba Hafiz Saeed and seven others besides some other militants of Indian Mujahideen and Khalistan for their role in other subversive activities.
Senior government sources said two dossiers were handed over at the talks between Foreign Secretary Nirupama Rao and her Pakistani counterpart Salman Bashir.
In the first dossier, India, which has accused Pakistan of not being serious in prosecuting those involved in the 26/11 conspiracy, demanded that besides Saeed, Lashker operatives Muzzamil, Abu Hamza, Abu Khafa and Usman should be handed over to it.
All of them have been named in the charge sheet filed by Mumbai police in connection with the 2008 Mumbai attack which left 166 people dead.
India also asked Pakistan to hand over Lashker commander Sajjid Mir, retired Army Major Iqbal and one more person for questioning as they were still suspects in the 26/11 attack.
The Mumbai terror attack dossier also included a separate demand for handing over of Illyas Kashmiri, a militant whose links with global terror group Al-Qaeda had even been established by the FBI.
The second dossier demanded handing over of seven Khalistani militants and 17 Indian Mujahideen terrorists which includes five Pakistani nationals.
