India to Share Train Bombing Evidence with Pakistan


Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh says he will share with Pakistan the evidence collected about the July train bombings in Mumbai, formerly known as Bombay, that killed nearly 200 people.

India has charged that the Pakistani spy agency was involved in the bombings. Mr. Singh said what Pakistan does after receiving the evidence will demonstrate how committed Islamabad is to peace between the rival countries.

Speaking to reports on his plane while returning from a trip to South Africa, Mr. Singh said Pakistan will have to "walk the talk" and address India's concerns about terrorism.

He said he reached an agreement with Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf to cooperate on combating regional terror, and the bombing investigation will test how sincere the Pakistani leader is to his commitment.

The two leaders met on the sidelines of a summit in Cuba last month.

Saturday, Mumbai's police chief alleged that Pakistan's intelligence agency, known as the ISI, was behind the Mumbai bombings. Pakistan immediately denied the claims and demanded evidence.
