Islamabad, Nov 20: Pakistan will send a judicial commission to India to interview key persons linked to the 26/11 probe within a week after getting the nod from New Delhi on the venue for holding the panel's proceedings, Interior Minister Rehman Malik has said.
Malik said almost all legal formalities have been completed for sending a judicial commission to India.
Pakistan is currently waiting for India's reply to a query about the venue for holding proceedings of the judicial commission, he said.
“The commission will be sent to India within a week of receiving the awaited letter (from India),” he said yesterday.
Malik had earlier said it was necessary for the commission to visit India and interview a magistrate and police officers involved in the investigation of the 2008 Mumbai attacks, which were carried out by Pakistan-based LeT terror outfit.
He said the testimony of the Indian officials is needed to proceed with the prosecution of seven Pakistani suspects charged with involvement in the 26/11 attacks that claimed 166 lives.
