Pak seeks clarifications from India on fugitives list

A day after Prime Minister Manmohan Singh indicated that India won't call off engagement with Pakistan, Islamabad on Sunday (29-May-2011) sought clarification from New Delhi regarding errors that have crept into its list of 50 most-wanted terrorists.

Pakistan has sought clarifications on the “exact status” of the list of 50 wanted fugitives that New Delhi had handed over to Islamabad during the Home/Interior Secretary-level talks in March-end.

To the embarrassment of home ministry and security agencies, it recently emerged that two men on the list of 50 most wanted fugitives were in India.

The list, handed over to Pakistan earlier this year, included the names of five Pakistani army officers linked to the 2008 Mumbai attacks.

Though there was no immediate formal reaction, officials in the home ministry repeated the line taken by home minister P Chidambaram and home secretary G K Pillai, which is that India would notify changes in the list to Pakistan through Interpol, because most of the names on the list belong to red corner notices.
