Former Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif on Saturday made startling revelations on 2008 Mumbai terror attack and admitted that militant outfits are active in Pakistan. While speaking to Dawn, the tainted prime minister revealed that Pakistan could have prevented the terrorist attack in Mumbai which consumed the lives of more than 150 people. In the explosive interview, he also asked why his country is failing to complete the trial.

In the report published by Pakistani daily Dawn, Nawaz Sharif asked, “Militant organisations are active. Call them non-state actors, should we allow them to cross the border and kill 150 people in Mumbai? Why can’t we complete trial?”

Earlier on Tuesday, Pakistan’s National Accountability Bureau (NAB) ordered an inquiry against Sharif and several others for allegedly laundering a staggering amount of $4.9 billion to India. The money laundering case first came to the fore in the World Bank’s Migration and Remittance Book 2016.

The 2016 report claimed that almost $5 billion was laundered to Finance Ministry of India after which Indian foreign exchanges witnessed a surge in finances while Pakistan’s economy took a hit.
