Pak team in Mumbai to examine witnesses
25 September, 2013
MUMBAI: Investigators from Islamabad began cross-examining witnesses in Mumbai on Tuesday over the deadly attacks on the Indian city in 2008.
Ten heavily-armed men stormed a luxury hotel and other targets in Mumbai nearly five years ago, killing 166 people in the three-day attack, which India blamed on the Pakistan-based Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) militant group. Members of a judicial commission arrived at a south Mumbai magistrates' court on Tuesday morning amid tight security, an AFP photographer at the scene said.
The Indian witnesses due to be examined include doctors who conducted autopsies on the gunmen and the chief investigating police officer in the case, the Press Trust of India (PTI) news agency reported.
