India lodges protest with Pakistan High Commissioner

NEW DELHI: The Indian Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) summoned Pakistan High Commissioner Shahid Malik on Monday to lodge protest with Pakistan over Mumbai attacks.

Malik was called by Joint Secretary (Pakistan) in the MEA, T C A Raghavan, who issued a demarche to him on the Mumbai strikes which is suspected to have been carried out by “elements” based in Pakistan, External Affairs ministry spokesperson said.

Islamabad has been in denial but India says it has hard evidence to show Pakistani link. Meanwhile, Pakistan Foreign Ministry sources said that the visit of Pakistn High Commissioner in MEA was pre-planned and he was not summoned.

India said on Monday it had called Pakistan's envoy and informed him that deadly attacks in Mumbai were carried out by militants from Pakistan and demanded swift action against those responsible.

Indian investigators said the Islamist gunmen who launched the attacks on India's financial capital, killing at least 200 people and injuring more than 300, in a three-day siege, had months of commando training in Pakistan.

The fallout prompted a second top politician from the ruling Congress party to resign, amid growing fury among many Indians at apparent intelligence lapses.

The attacks against Mumbai's two best-known luxury hotels and other landmarks in the city of 18 million are a major setback for improving ties between nuclear-armed India and Pakistan.

India fired the first formal diplomatic salvo late on Monday after days of fingerpointing, releasing a foreign ministry statement describing the actions it expects Islamabad to take.

“It was conveyed to the Pakistan high commissioner that Pakistan's actions needed to match the sentiments expressed by its leadership that it wishes to have a qualitatively new relationship with India,” the statement said.

“He was informed that the recent terrorist attack on Mumbai was carried out by elements from Pakistan. Government expects that strong action would be taken against those elements, whosoever they may be, responsible for this outrage,” it said.
