26/11: No word from Pak on visit of its judicial commission
New Delhi: Pakistan has not yet conveyed to
India when its judicial commission will visit here to take the
statement of the magistrate who had recorded the confessional
statement of Ajmal Amir Kasab, the lone surviving terrorist of
26/11 attack, to pursue the case there.
During the Home Secretary-level talks held in New Delhi
in March, India agreed to a Pakistani proposal to host a
judicial commission of that country to take statements of
Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate RV Sawant Waghule,
Investigating Officer Ramesh Mahale and the doctor who carried
out the post-mortem of the terrorists.
Islamabad has been maintaining that it is necessary to
send the commission to India as part of the judicial process
of 26/11 case in Pakistan and promised at the Home Secretary-
level talks that they would do so within six weeks- by May 15.
"But more than eight weeks after the Home Secretary level
talks, nothing has been heard from Islamabad on the proposed
judicial commission`s visit to India," an official said.
The government has already conveyed to the Bombay High
Court that Sawant and Waghule should be available for
questioning by the Pakistani commission.
The Pakistani commission wants to interview the Indian
officials in connection with the trial of seven Pakistani
suspects, currently in a jail in that country, in 26/11 Mumbai
