Lahore, Jan.19 (ANI): Pakistan's Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) has claimed to have traced down 20 terrorists, who were wanted in connection with the November 2008 Mumbai terror attacks.

The FIA's Special Investigation Group (SIG) has booked all the wanted extremists, who allegedly provided logistical and monetary support to the 10 gunmen who attacked Mumbai on 26 November 2008, The Daily Times reported.

According to sources, the SIG had also gathered the photographs of the attackers and several other important information from the arrested terrorists.

The action comes a day after Foreign Secretary Nirupama Rao urged Islamabad to do more to stop terrorism emanating from its soil.

During a television chat show, Rao had said that the Pakistan government has to and can do more to dismantle the terrorist infrastructure operating from its soil, and prevent the continuous targeting of innocent Indian citizens. (ANI)
