India's foreign ministry says authorities have handed over evidence to Pakistan linking the deadly Mumbai attacks to Pakistani "elements." India has blamed the November attacks that killed 164 people on Pakistani-based militants, but Pakistan has denied the accusations saying India had yet to provide definitive proof.

An official statement says Foreign Secretary Shivshankar Menon has given evidence to the Pakistani High Commissioner in New Delhi on Monday that links the attacks to "elements in Pakistan."

The evidence included material from the interrogation of the lone surviving gunman, details of conversations between the gunmen and their alleged handlers in Pakistan, recovered weapons, and data satellite phones.
