Pakistan’s new High Commissioner to India, Salman Bashir has said that his country was not taking Abu Jundal’s claims on Pakistan’s role in 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks lightly.

Speaking to Karan Thapar on Devil’s Advocate, he, however, suggested it was unlikely that Islamabad would investigate the role of state actors in the attacks.

Responding to a question Salman Bashir said if our own Army Headquarters is attacked… if ISI offices are attacked, I think it is really unbelievable, incredible to allege that Pakistani state, institutions have been involved in this.

To another question, Pakistan High Commissioner to India said anybody… whether it is state, non-state, terrorism is something that is abhorrent to our ethos, to our values, internationally, to Pakistan and so therefore, I think let’s not reach prematurely to conclusions that are not warranted.
