India ready to allow Pak to quiz 26/11 witnesses
New Delhi: India is open to Pakistan`s proposal to form a commission on the 26/11 Mumbai attacks that would visit here to record testimony of two key witnesses but will wait for a formal request.
Government sources said tonight that India has no problem in cooperating with Pakistan in such an arrangement as New Delhi had already agreed to let its officials depose before a Pakistani court through video-conferencing.
But the proposal from Pakistan on the commission has to be approved by the court of that country conducting the trial of the Mumbai attacks accused, like LeT operative Zakiur Rehman Lakhvi, before a request can be sent to New Delhi.
However, sources said the Pakistani proposal could be a ploy to further delay its probe against the accused in the Mumbai attacks that left 166 people dead.
Sources said till the Pakistani court takes a decision, any discussion on the issue is premature. India`s stand could be formed only after a formal request comes from Islamabad, they felt.
