The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) would give evidence,if necessary,in the Mumbai terror attack trial,Union Home Minister P Chidambaram said in Mumbai on Monday.
“Our investigation has been helped by FBI. If necessary,FBI will give evidence in the trial,” Chidambaram told reporters after reviewing Maharashtra’s security situation in the wake of the terror attacks.
India is awaiting response from Pakistan to the 26/11 dossier,he said. “We have given them a dossier. Let them respond to it. I will comment after they give the response,” he said.
“It is all rubbish,” was Chidambaram’s response when asked about media reports which indicated that according to Pakistan,the 26/11 plot was hatched in Bangladesh or Europe.
“Pakistan has not told you nor me. Don’t go by newspapers report,” he added.
The Centre has decided to set up a Coastal Command by integrating the functions of the Navy and Coast Guard to combat possible terrorist attacks from the sea in the light of last November’s Mumbai terror attacks,Chidambaram said.
The command envisages that the Navy would look after the security of blue waters,the Coast Guard after the territorial waters and the coastal police would keep vigil at the grassroot level.
