Mumbai attack: Indian envoy meets Pakistani ministerDecember 27th, 2011 - 12:25 pm ICT by IANS
Islamabad, Dec 27 (IANS) India’s High Commissioner to Pakistan Sharat Sabharwal and Interior Minister Rehman Malik have discussed matters relating to Mumbai attack and the visit of a judicial commission to India.
The meeting took place Monday, reported Associated Press of Pakistan.
India Nov 5 welcomed Pakistan’s decision to send the judicial commission.
Pakistan’s High Commissioner Shahid Malik had met Indian Home Minister P. Chidambaram and conveyed to him that the Pakistani government would be sending the commission to take forward the process of bringing to justice the perpetrators and conspirators of the Mumbai carnage.
The commission is expected to record the statements of Mumbai Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate R.V. Sawant Waghule and investigating officer Ramesh Mahale, who had recorded the confessional statement of Ajmal Amir Kasab, convicted of the terror attack.
Kasab is the lone surviving terrorist caught alive during the 26/11 attacks and he has already been convicted in the case by an Indian court.
Islamabad has contended that the charges against seven LeT militants, including its ‘operation commander’ Zaki-ur-Rehman Lakhvi, who are currently lodged in a Pakistani jail, were based on Kasab’s statement and hence the magistrate and the investigating officer’s statements were necessary to furnish before the anti-terror court.
