Pakistan undecided about 26/11 judicial panel: India

New Delhi, July 6: India said Wednesday that Pakistan has not yet made up its mind on when to send its judicial commission for recording the statements of Mumbai terror attack witnesses.

‘There is no indication from Pakistan if and when their team is visiting India. The situation stands where it stood a few weeks ago,’ Union Home Minister P. Chidambaram told reporters here.

Pakistan had earlier expressed desire to record statement of the magistrate, R.V. Sawant Waghule, who had recorded the confession of Ajmal Amir Kasab, the lone terrorist captured alive during the Mumbai attack.

This, according to Islamabad, will help in prosecuting the suspected masterminds of the 2008 terror strike in which 166 people were killed when 10 Pakistani terrorists sneaked into Mumbai and unleashed murder and mayhem with bombs and guns at multiple targets.

Investigating Officer Ramesh Mahale and the doctor who carried out the autopsy of the terrorists who attacked Mumbai and were killed during action are also to testify before the Pakistani judicial team.

India had expressed its willingness to let the Pakistani judicial commission take the statements when the home secretaries of the two countries met here in March.

Pakistan has arrested seven suspected terrorists of the Lashkar-e-Taiba terror outfit, including its founding member Zakiur Rehman Lakhvi, who face charges of planning, financing and facilitating the Mumbai attack.
