The US has linked sovereign immunity for ISI chief Shuja Pasha in a lawsuit filed by relatives of victims of the Mumbai attacks in a Brooklyn court to the diplomatic immunity for an American arrested for the Lahore double murder.
Leading US newspaper `The New
York Times` has justified withholding information that Raymond
Davis, accused of murdering two persons in Pakistan, has links
with the CIA, saying that the disclosure could`ve led to his death.
Senator John Kerry, a close
foreign policy aid of the US President, has left for a quick visit to Pakistan amidst strained bilateral ties after Islamabad refused to grant diplomatic immunity to a US official facing murder charge.
The US has again pressed for the
release of American official Raymond Davis, charged with murder, insisting that the authorities had not
considered eyewitness accounts and physical evidence that
showed he acted in self-defence.
