Union Home Minister P Chidambaram on Wednesday said the arrest and the subsequent interrogation of alleged 26/11 mastermind Abu Jundal had confirmed Pakistan’s involvement in the carnage.

According to him, Jundal’s arrest had linked the many dots which were earlier missing in the probe into the terror attack.  But even as he mounted pressure on Pakistan, the minister said the Karachi terror control room could not have been established without Islamabad’s support.  “It is no longer possible to deny that though the incident happened in Mumbai, there was a control room in Pakistan before and during the incident,” Chidambaram said.

He also pointed out that following the interrogation of the lone surviving 26/11 attacker Ajmal Kasab, evidence gathered by the intelligence agencies had revealed the involvement of state actors and now Abu Jundal’s statements corroborated the facts already known to Centre. “After Abu Jundal’s interrogation, it was clear that there were state actors. Dots are increasingly getting joined. Though there were many pseudonyms, it is clear that state actors were there. Pictures are becoming clearer and clearer. We have been able to know who (all) were there and where they were,” he said.

The Home Minister also rubbished his Pakistani counterpart Rehman Malik’s assertion that no state actors were involved in the 26/11 attacks.
