New Delhi: Former of today admitted that the 26/11 Mumbai attack was carried out by a group, based in Pakistan. Speaking at the 19th Asian Security Conference, which was inaugurated by Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar, Mr Durrani described the attacks on India's financial capital as the classic trans-border terror event.

''The 26/11 Mumbai attack carried out by a terror group based in Pakistan is classic trans-border terrorist event,'' said the former top Pakistan's security official, who was National Security Advisor at the time heavily armed terrorists from across border arrived at the Mumbai shore and launched attacks at several locations.
 
The standoff, which continued for over three days, had left 166 people dead, including 18 security personnel. The blunt admission on part of the former is likely to put Pakistan in an embarrassing position, since Islamabad is asking for the concrete evidence from India about the involvement of Pakistan-based terrorists, especially LeT.

Pakistan has been blaming India for the weak prosecution and slow progress in the ongoing trial in Islamabad and went on to suggest that LeT commander Zakiur Rehman Lakhvi got bail because New Delhi couldn't provide incriminating evidence. (UNI)
