26/11 case: Pakistan judicial commission to visit India

A Pakistani judicial commission will be in India in a week or 10 days to record the statement of key individuals involved in the Mumbai terror attacks case, Pakistan Interior Minister Rehman Malik on Thursday said.

“We have registered an FIR against Ajmal Kasab. Our legal experts will go to India in a week or 10 days,” Mr. Malik said, while addressing The International Institute for Strategic Studies here on “Countering Extremism in South Asia.”

The commission seeks to take statements of Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate R.V. Sawant Waghule, who took the confessional statement of Kasab, lone surviving terrorist of 26/11 attack, investigating officer Ramesh Mahale and the doctor who carried out the post-mortem of the terrorists.

Referring to “concerns” in India, Mr. Malik said, “We have decided to work together very closely. We know the Kashmir issue has to be resolved. Politically morally and diplomatically we support the cause.” — PTI
