New Delhi: Pakistan's intelligence agency Directorate for Inter-Services Intelligence’s (ISI) chief Lieutenant General Ahmed Shujaa Pasha says India had not yet given any evidence of the involvement of Pakistani groups.

In an interview to a German magazine Der Spiegel, Lt Gen Pasha said he was willing to come to India to aid the investigations into the Mumbai terror attacks.

"So far the Indians have failed to provide evidence to support their claims that Pakistani groups sponsored by the ISI were behind the Mumbai attacks. They have given us nothing, no numbers, no connections, no names. This is regrettable," Lt Gen Pasha, ISI’s Director General, claimed.

"We may be crazy in Pakistan, but not completely out of our minds. We know full well that terror is our enemy, not India. It is clear to the army chief and I that this government must succeed. Otherwise we will have a lot of problems in this country. I report regularly to the President and take orders from him," he said.

Pakistan has been denying that India has given any concrete evidence of involvement of Pakistani elements in planning and executing the terror strikes in Mumbai.

India's Foreign Secretary Shiv Shankar Menon had given a dossier to Pakistan's High Commissioner in India Shahid Malik on Monday with details of Pakistani links to the attack.

But Pakistan has maintained that the terrorists who attacked Mumbai were not its citizens.

Reacting to the dossier, Pakistan's Foreign Secretary Salman Bashir said that India has given them very little information and that too is not credible.
