India has agreed to co-operate in 26/11 trial: Pakistan


Islamabad: Pakistan said on Friday that India has agreed to share the material evidence and the cross examination of prosecution witnesses for the Mumbai terror attack in 2008.

“The Indian Foreign Secretary, in his letter of 6th September 2016, has expressed India’s readiness to share the material evidence, which Pakistan had been seeking for quite some time for the Mumbai trial,” the Foreign Secretary said in a statement.

The statement said the material evidence and the cross examination of prosecution witnesses are needed to proceed further with the trial in Pakistan as per the law of the land.

“Legal aspects and modalities of the proposal contained in the Indian Foreign Secretary’s letter are currently being examined by our legal experts,” it added.


Meanwhile in Geneva, India, raising the Balochistan issue second time in three days at the UNHRC, said Pakistan is a nation that practices terrorism on its own people and the sufferings of the people of Balochistan are a telling testimony in this regard.

Exercising its right of reply, India, said Pakistan is the irony of a nation that has established a well-earned reputation of being the global epicentre of terrorism holding forth on human rights.

“It surely is the height of hypocrisy for a Government that preaches, practises, encourages and nurtures terrorism to venture into the subject of human rights,” India said.
