India to confront Pak with Abu Jundal evidence

India is all set to talk tough on terror with Pakistan on the first day of foreign secretary level talks scheduled to begin today.

It is widely expected that the Indian government will hand over a copy of Jundal's Pakistani passport and and ID as proof that he had state support, contrary to Pakistani claims.

According to the documents, Zabiuddin’s permanent address in Pakistan is listed as Muridke in Sheikhpura district.

Incidentally, Muridke is the location where terror group Lashkar-e-Taiba is accused of conducting terror camps where accused in the 26 November, 2008 terror strikes in Mumbai were reportedly trained.

India will also renew its demand for voice samples of the 26/11 accused that could bolster Jundal's testimony, according to a report in CNN-IBN. The government is also expected to push once again for Pakistan to speed up its 26/11 trial and pursue suspected mastermind Hafiz Saeed.

Kashmir is also set to figure prominently, with Pakistani Foreign Secretary Jalil Abbas Jilani already having met Kashmiri separatist leader Syed Ali Shah Geelani at the Pakistani embassy on Tuesday.

Pakistan Foreign Secretary Jalil Abbas Jilani told CNN-IBN that Kashmir is a vital issue.

"It’s a fact that no other issue can be solved until Kashmir issue is solved. Trade will also not grow", he said.

The two-day talks between Foreign Secretary Jalil Abbas Jilani and his Indian counterpart Ranjan Mathai will also focus on several other issues, including nuclear CBMS and the possible freeing of Sarabjit Singh.
