Indian Army Chief Bipin Rawat, on Saturday, responded to Pakistan Prime Minister's statements of the 2008 Mumbai terror attacks wherein, he acknowledged that the 26/11 attack perpetrated by Pakistani terror group Lashkar-e-Taiba was an 'act of terrorism'.
On being questioned about Pakistan PM's remarks, General Rawat said, "We know who did it. I don't think we need any more statement from anyone else. The whole international community knows it. Acceptance is good but even without their acceptance, we knew who had done it", while speaking to the news agency ANI.
On Thursday, Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan, in an interview with an English daily, acknowledged that the 2008 Mumbai terror attack was perpetrated by Pakistani terror group Lashkar-e-Taiba.
Speaking on the Mumbai terror attacks, Pakistan PM had said, “We also want something done about the bombers of Mumbai. I have asked our government to find out the status of the case. Resolving that case is in our interest because it was an act of terrorism."
Imran Khan's response has come in the light of the question of the release Zakiur Rehman Lakhvi, who is a leader of the terror group Lashkar-e-Taiba on bail in Pakistan while a nine-year trial has dragged on for six other suspects, with no results.
On the 10th anniversary of the dreadful 26/11 Mumbai terrorist attack, the Government of India released a statement in which it had given a stern warning to Pakistan to "give up double standards and to expeditiously bring the perpetrators of the horrific attack to justice".
Earlier, General Bipin Rawat had warned Pakistan PM Imran Khan stating that the neighbouring country has to stop sending terrorists to India.
General Rawat was responding to Khan's statements at the Kartarpur Corridor groundbreaking event where the Pakistan PM had made a pitch for peace between India and Pakistan and said that the countries need to move ahead and take a step towards this.
