Interpol notice vindicates India’s stand

New Delhi: With Interpol issuing Red Corner Notice against Jamaat-ud Dawa (JuD) chief Hafiz Saeed, India today said the development vindicates its stand on his involvement in Mumbai terror attacks and that Pakistan should act on the basis of evidence collected “painstakingly".

External affairs minister S M Krishna said the world should take note of Interpol notice and come to their own conclusions.

“Interpol has issued Red Corner Notice for Saeed’s involvement... It is a vindication of the stand the Government of India has taken," he told reporters while commenting on yesterday’s development.

Krishna said “the perpetrators of the Mumbai attacks will have to be brought to justice. We have painstakingly collected evidence to convey the involvement of these persons."

To a question regarding the Interpol notice, the minister said, “I think the world should take note of these developments and then they will have to come to their own conclusions."

“India can only do this much and nothing beyond that. We have done whatever we can and will continue to impress on decidability of curbing terror," he said.

Asked about Pakistan’s contention so far that the evidence given by India on Saeed was not enough to prosecute him, Krishna described it as “unfortunate".
