Mumbai: The members of the Pakistani Judicial Commission which concluded recording of the statements of four key witnesses in the 26/11 terror attacks case on Saturday, left for New Delhi on Monday, police said.
"Four days after they arrived here, the Pakistani panel members left for Delhi on a flight this evening and will return to Karachi tomorrow," said an IPS officer.
The eight-member panel recorded the statements of three witnesses that included investigating officer and two doctors on Saturday while that of a Magistrate who had recorded confession of the lone surviving Pakistani perpetrator Mohammed Ajmal Kasab, was taken a day earlier.

The panel members yesterday visited several tourist spots including Haji Ali Dargah, Hanging Gardens, Gateway of India and iconic Taj Mahal Hotel, one of the sites that was under siege during the 26/11 terror attacks.

The proceedings were held here in-camera before the Chief Metropolitan Magistrate S S Shinde who will now make a comprehensive report and send it along with the statements of the witnesses to the anti-terror court in Pakistan which is hearing the 26/11 case separately registered in that country.
