NEW DELHI (Reuters) Pakistans intelligence agency controlled and coordinated the 2008 Mumbai attacks, a top Indian security official said, in what is the most direct accusation yet of Pakistan by India in the strikes that killed 166 people. Home Secretary GK Pillais comments to an Indian newspaper published on Wednesday come a day before the foreign ministers of the two countries meet in Islamabad to repair relations. Pillais remarks are more direct and could find resonance in the foreign ministers meeting. It was not just a peripheral role, the Indian Express newspaper quoted Pillai as saying. They (ISI) were literally controlling and coordinating it from the beginning till the end. Pillai was not immediately available for comment. Pillai said the evidence against the ISI emerged from the interrogation by Indian officials of a Chicago man, David Headley, who pleaded guilty to working with LeT to plan the attacks. The sense that has come out from Headleys interrogation is that the ISI has had a much more significant role to play (in the attacks), said Pillai, the top-ranking official in charge of domestic security. The same goes for Hafiz Saeed. He was not a peripheral player. He knew everything. Pillai said he was hopeful that Pakistan would share information on steps it has taken against the Mumbai planners. We have given them a whole series of data and information that we have. We have given them the names, we have given them the descriptions, we have given them what their height is or their complexion is, he said. Now it is up to them.
