New Delhi: India has given a written assurance to Pakistan that a legal panel of that country will be allowed to cross examine four witnesses in the 26/11 attacks case when it visits Mumbai for the second time.

Following a request from Pakistan, the Home Ministry has obtained a written consent from the Bombay High Court that the Pakistani judicial Commission will be allowed to cross examine the witnesses to take the Mumbai attack case in Pakistan to its logical conclusion. “We have sent the High Court’s communication and the statements of the four witnesses to Pakistan for submission before a Rawalpindi court,” a top Home Ministry officer said.

Seven terrorists, including Lashkar-e-Taiba operations commander Zakiur Rehman Lakhvi, were charged with planning, financing and executing the attacks that killed 166 people in Mumbai in November 2008 and their trial was going on in a Rawalpindi court.
