Entire world knows Pak link to 26/11: Gen Rawat

Press Trust of India  |  New Delhi 

Gen. Bipin Saturday said the international community knew about the role of Pakistani terrorists in the terror attack and that did not want anyone's acknowledgement about it.

The chief's comments came when asked about reported remarks of that the 2008 attack was "an act of terrorism" and that resolving the case was in Pakistan's interest.

Khan's comments during a media interview was seen as an indirect acknowledgement of involvement of Pakistani terrorists in the attack.

"International community knows who did it...but even without it, we knew who did it," Gen. said on the sidelines of an event when asked about Khan's reported comments.

The chief, however, said acceptance by about the 26/11 terror attack was good.

He further said, "We know who did it. I don't think we have to get anymore statement from anybody."

Asked about comments by former (retd) D S Hooda that the "hype" around the 2016 surgical strikes on terror launchpads along the Line of Control in was unwarranted and that it is not good when operations get politicised, Gen said the remarks were an individual's opinion.

At the same time, Gen Rawat said, he respected Hooda's words.

As Commander, Hooda was involved in planning and execution of the surgical strikes.
