Durrani's 'bold' statement has exposed Pakistan thoroughly: Ujjwal Nikam

New Delhi [India], Mar.6 (ANI): Commenting on the revelation made by Pakistan's former national security advisor Mahmud Ali Durrani on Mumbai 26/11 terror attack, public prosecutor Ujjwal Nikam on Monday lauded the former for showing 'boldness', adding that Pakistan has been exposed thoroughly after his assertion.

"Durrani has shown boldness and firmness. He has exposed Pakistan thoroughly and India's stand, as far terror attack is concerned, is totally ventilated. All this while, we were saying that terror outfits are being sponsored by Pakistan. Today's statement by Durrani clearly proves that the entire criminal conspiracy was hatched in Pakistan and Durrani, being an ex-NSA of Pakistan, knows the details," Nikam, who was a special public prosecutor in the 26/11 attack case, told ANI.

Asserting that Durrani should advise the Pakistan government regarding his assertion, Nikam said the latter could not refuse the claim made by the ex-NSA of Pakistan.

"To punish the perpetrators of the terrorist attack of November 26, we have given many evidences. So, the entire evidence is with the Pakistan government," he added.

Earlier in the day, Durrani said the Mumbai terror attack was carried out by a terror outfit based in Pakistan and added that it was a classic trans-border terrorist event.

"The 26/11 Mumbai attack, carried out by a terror group based in Pakistan, is an example of a classic trans-border terrorist event," he said while speaking at the 19th Asian Security Conference being held at the Institute of Defence and Studies and Analyses.

He said that because he held on this view, the government was not too pleased with, and it could one of reasons why he lost his job as the National Security Advisor (NSA).

Durrani also said that Jamaat-ud-Dawachief Hafiz Saeed had no utility and Pakistan should act against him.

Mahmud Ali Durrani, a retired army general, was the National Security Advisor to the Pakistani government when 10 Pakistani terrorists sneaked into Mumbai after hijacking a boat and killed at least 164 people and wounding 308 across the city. (ANI)
