Pakistan commission likely to visit Mumbai

The Government has informed the Bombay High Court about Pakistan judicial commission's desire to visit the country and interview key persons associated with the probe into the 2008 Mumbai terror attacks.

Volleying questions on the commission’s visit, Home Minister P Chidambaram on Friday said the Bombay HC has been apprised of the Pakistani commission desire to visit India in January and an approval from the chief justice of the Bombay HC is awaited.

"Once we hear from the chief justice of the Bombay High Court we will convey it to Pakistan. I hope this will go through in January 2012," he said. New Delhi was informed on Tuesday that the Pakistan judicial commission will visit India in January 2012, official sources said.

The commission will take the statements of Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate R V Sawant Waghule and Investigating Officer Ramesh Mahale, who recorded the confessional statement of Ajmal Kasab, the lone surviving terrorist involved in the 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks, to pursue the case in Pakistan.

It also wanted to record statements of the two doctors who carried out the post mortem of the terrorists killed in the operation.
