Islamabad, July 17 (IANS) A Pakistani court Tuesday rejected a report submitted by the commission on the Mumbai terror attack case, a media report said.

The anti-terrorist court (ATC) of Rawalpindi was hearing a petition against the judicial commission, reported Dawn.

The Mumbai terror attack in November 2008 was carried out by 10 Pakistanis who left 166 people, including many foreigners, dead.

The court rejected the report and termed as illegal the Indian move not to allow the commission access to witnesses.

The court said the panel’s report could not be made part of records related to those accused in Pakistan and described as “a waste of time” the activities of the judicial commission.

It noted that if both countries agreed, then the judicial commission could travel to India to cross-examine the witnesses in the future.
