Pakistan
List of suspected terrorists to be handed over to India for extradition

Pakistani Foreign Minister Abdul Sattar said in Islamabad on January 19 that the government would hand over to India a list of persons involved in terrorist activities in Pakistan for their extradition. Speaking at a joint press conference along with Canadian Deputy Prime Minister John Manley at the Foreign Office, he said, "We have names on our list and we will forward the list to the Indian government in due course of time so that the exchange of criminals is done on reciprocal basis." However, Sattar did not disclose the names or the number of terrorists who had reportedly fled to India after committing acts of terrorism in Pakistan.

Commenting on the Indian demand of extraditing 20 Pakistan-based terrorists, Sattar said among those wanted by New Delhi included six Pakistanis and there was no question of handing them over to India. According to him, "As far as extradition of non-Pakistanis is concerned, it involves a complex legal and political procedure." He said the government was tracing these criminals as it had not yet ascertained as to how many of them were in official custody. The Foreign Minister said the Indian list contained names of some criminals who had been involved in cases as old as the hijacking case of 1981.
