Islamabad: A Pakistani judicial commission would reportedly visit India soon to interview some key people in connection with the investigation into the Mumbai terror attacks.

Pakistan’s High Commissioner to India Shahid Malik has conveyed the message to Indian Home Minister P. Chidambaram, saying that the step would help to carry forward the process of bringing the conspirators of the 26/11 attacks to justice.

“I came to inform the minister that the government of Pakistan will be sending the judicial commission to carry the process forward and I have mentioned that to the minister,” The Dawn quoted him, as saying.

Malik said that dates for the judicial commission’s proposed visit has not been finalized as of now.

The judicial commission is expected to take statements of Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate R.V. Sawant Waghule and Investigating Officer Ramesh Mahale, who had recorded the confessional statement of Ajmal Kasab, the lone surviving attacker. It is also likely to record the statement of the doctor who carried out the post-mortem of the terrorists killed during the siege.

“The government of India has been informed. The home minister has been informed by me that we will be sending a commission. Now it is (for the) Indian government to give us certain details,” Malik added.
