India asked to allow second Mumbai attacks commission

27 November, 2012

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan has requested India to allow another judicial commission to visit the neighbouring country to cross-examine the key witnesses in the Mumbai attacks' case and accelerate the prosecution of the Pakistani suspects.

Pakistan has recently sent the terms of reference for the commission's visit to India, Interior Ministry sources said.

Earlier, the trial court in Rawalpindi had rejected the findings of the first judicial commission that visited Mumbai in March this year as it was not allowed to cross-examine the witnesses and asked the commission to visit India again. The commission had only recorded the statements of the witnesses and could not question them.

The witnesses that the second Pakistani judicial commission wants to cross-examine include the magistrate who recorded the confessional statement of Ajmal Kasab.
