Share intel to avoid Mumbai type attack: Rehman Malik

Islamabad: India must share intelligence on terrorists with Pakistan so that a "Mumbai type terror attack does not take place again", Interior Minister Rehman Malik said here Saturday.

After inking an agreement with India on a liberalised visa agreement, Rehman Malik said: "One good thing is that both countries are ready to talk on everything including Kashmir."

The agreement was signed by Malik and Indian External Affairs Minister S.M. Krishna who arrived in Pakistan Friday on a three-day visit.

Malik announced that all Indian fishermen in Pakistani prisons "stand released today as a goodwill gesture for his (Krishna's) visit".

On the Mumbai terror attack, the interior minister said "we have requested for a second judicial commission to visit India" to examine the witnesses.

"Let me (make it) clear to the people and leadership of India that we are very keen that these culprits are brought to justice," he said.

He stressed that India "must share intelligence on terrorists with us so that Mumbai type terror attack does not take place again" and described terrorism as "a big problem".

Ten terrorists from Pakistan had sneaked into Mumbai in November 2008 and gone on a three-day killing spree that left 166 people dead. Nine terrorists were gunned down while the tenth, Ajmal Amir Kasab, was nabbed.

On Sarabjit Singh, an Indian prisoner on a death row in Pakistan, Malik assured that they are "trying to work this out".

"There is a Supreme Court court judgement on his death penalty and a judicial process has to be followed," he said.

Krishna had Friday urged Pakistan President Asif Ali Zardari to consider the mercy plea of Sarabjit Singh.
