Pakistani investigators arrives in India for Mumbai carnage probe

Pakistani investigators and lawyers arrived in India on Wednesday to obtain evidence for prosecuting seven Pakistani suspects linked to the 2008 Mumbai attacks in which 166 people died.
The visit is the first of its kind, and comes after Pakistan indicted seven alleged conspirators in 2009. Islamabad has since said it needs to gather more evidence in India before proceeding further against the seven.
“The members of the Pakistani judicial commission are in New Delhi. They will leave for Mumbai on Thursday,” India’s Home Ministry Spokeswoman Ira Joshi told AFP. The nine-member commission of prosecutors, defence lawyers and a court official will take statements from witnesses and cross-examine them.
“Their mandate is to record statements of those who investigated the 2008 case,” said Joshi.
