MUMBAI: Home minister P Chidambaram on Friday said Pakistan has not fulfilled its promise to bring the masterminds of Mumbai terror attacks to justice and hoped it will realise its responsibility as a nation and take action against them.

"In Pakistan, we have a neighbour who has not fulfilled its promise to bring 26/11 masterminds to justice. We have learnt a lesson that while we will always trust our neighbour, we must always be on guard," Chidambaram said on the sidelines of a function here.

"I sincerely hope that on the second anniversary of this horrific tragedy, Pakistan will realise its responsibility as a nation, as a government and fulfil its promises to bring to justice those who perpetrated the attacks," he said.

Recalling the unfulfilled assurances given by Islamabad, he said it had promised to bring to justice the masterminds, the controllers and the handlers of the terror strike by arresting all the seven persons whose names were handed over by India to it.

The home minister said Pakistan was yet to provide voice samples of the persons who had been named as perpetrators of the carnage.

"On a day like this while we honour those who laid down their lives, while we renew to our people our pledge that we will do everything in our power to secure this country and secure the people, it is my duty to caution the people that we have a neighbour who has not yet fulfilled the promises made to us," he said.

The home minister also said that there is a need to pay attention to proper training, weapons and housing needs of police forces.

"We must pay attention to police forces or else we won't have an efficient police. There are over three lakh vacancies in police constabulary in India. We must pay attention to proper shoes, uniform, training, weapons, pay and housing needs of police force," Chidambaram said.

Lauding slain police inspector Tukaram Ombale, who caught the lone surviving terrorist Ajmal Amir Kasab, Chidambaram, said, "If Kasab hadn't been caught alive, there would be no conclusive link to Pakistan in 26/11 attacks."

Chidambaram was speaking after handing over the CNG filling station dealership to the family of Ombale in suburban Borivali.

Wikileaks cables: US Mexico drugs war fears revealed

Mexican soldiers are in the front line of the fight against drugs

Q&A: Mexico's drug violence
'No alternative' to Mexico's drug war
Battling the cartels
The US is concerned that the Mexican army is failing in its fight against drug cartels, according to diplomatic cables released by Wikileaks.

A cable sent by the US embassy in Mexico City last January described the army as "slow and risk averse."

It said troops were not trained to patrol the streets or gather evidence to convict those detained.

However, the cables praise the Mexican government for its "unprecedented commitment" to take on the drugs gangs.

But the fight is being hampered by widespread "official corruption" and a lack of co-ordination.

The cable dated 29 January 2010 said the deployment of troops in Ciudad Juarez - a border city at the heart of the drugs war - had failed to reduce violence.

Troops were not trained for law enforcement operations, and only 2% of of people arrested in the city were charged with any crime, it says.

The Mexican navy is seen as more effective, particularly in the operation in which the cartel leader Arturo Beltran Leyva was killed - an operation that, the cable says, was based on US intelligence.

Losing control
But security institutions were often "locked in a zero-sum competition in which one agency's success is viewed as another's failure, information is closely guarded and joint operations are all but unheard of."

Another embassy cable sent in October 2009 quotes a senior Mexican official as saying his government was worried it was losing control of some regions to the drug gangs.

"We have 18 months, " then-undersecretary of the interior, Geronimo Gutierrez, is quoted as saying, "and if we do not produce a tangible success that is recognizable to the Mexican people, it will be difficult to sustain this confrontation into the next administration."

"It is damaging Mexico's reputation, hurting foreign investment, and leading to a sense of government impotence."

More than 30,000 Mexicans have been killed in drug-related violence since President Calderon began deploying troops to fight the cartels four years ago.

The US embassy cables praise President Calderon's government for its willingness to build "strong civilian law enforcement institutions that are necessary for sustained success against organized crime in Mexico."

They also highlight how the kind of help Mexico requests from the US has shifted from military hardware to intelligence-gathering technology and training.

President Caderon's office said it had seen the leaked cables but had no immediate comment to make, the Associated Press reported.
