NEW DELHI — Indian officials released the names and hometowns of all 10 suspected Mumbai attackers Tuesday, saying it has pinpointed them even to individual postal codes within Pakistan.
With the disclosure, India is continuing to ratchet up pressure on Pakistan, apparently hoping that strong evidence will compel the international community to take a hard line against its neighbor.
Officials within Pakistan, including President Asif Ali Zardari, had previously cast doubt on India’s assertions that the terrorists who ran amok in Mumbai for three days last month were Pakistani. Tuesday’s announcement, including photos of nine of the 10, is intended to prove Indian claims beyond cavil.
Reports planted by US, says former ISI chief

New Delhi: Dismissing reports that Pakistan had decided to hand him over to Indian authorities in connection with the investigations into last week’s Terror attacks in Mumbai, former ISI chief General Hamid Gul on Sunday such reports were being “planted” by the United States to malign him.
“As far as I know, neither has the Indian Government asked Pakistan to hand me over to them nor has the Pakistan Government agreed to do any such thing,” General Gul, who served as director-general of the ISI between 1987 and 1989, told The Indian Express.
