A Pakistan judicial commission will be sent to India to take forward the 26/11 case and efforts would be made to conclude the trial in Pakistan as soon as possible, Pakistan's Interior Minister Rehman Malik said today.
A Home Ministry team will be going to Pakistan next week to finalise the modalities of the second Pakistan judicial commission to India. The findings of the first judicial commission were rejected by Pakistani courts since it had not cross-questioned four witnesses in India in the 26/11 case.
Mr Malik, who is on a three-day visit to India, said the issue of judicial commission was discussed during his meeting with Indian Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde on Friday evening. "We have worked out a way forward so that the (Pakistani) judicial commission may come," he said.
Mr Malik met Prime Minister Manmohan Singh today. "His (Manmohan Singh's) point of view was that my people here ask what you have done for the people who suffered during 26/11. We have given him a commitment to send a judicial commission here," he said. "The second judicial commission will come very soon."
