New Delhi: Indian agencies are banking on certified copies of several sensitive documents, which they may receive from the U.S. once the trial of Tahawwur Rana gets over in Chicago court, to nail the handlers of Mumbai terror attack. According to India news channel NDTV, with Islamabad dithering from sending its judicial commission to India to put breaks on the trial of 26/11 Mumbai terror attack, India is preparing to send its own judicial commission to Pakistan to nail the state and non-state culprits of the carnage.
Indian Home Ministry sources said while the judicial commission from Pakistan was to visit India by May 15, they were yet to receive any communication from Islamabad. Indian agencies are banking on certified copies of several sensitive documents, which they may receive from the U.S. once the trial of Tahawwur Rana gets over in Chicago court, to nail the handlers of Mumbai terror attack. India contends that besides Jamat-ud-Dawa chief Hafiz Saeed and top Lashkar commanders like Zaki-ur-Rehman Lakhvi, ISI and Pak Army were actively involved in planning and staging 26/11 attack that killed 166 Indians and six Americans.
Based on the certified copies of documents supposed to contain damning information, the NIA is expected to file a chargesheet against David Coleman Headley and his accomplice Rana to unravel the ISI-sponsored conspiracy.
“A charge sheet with strong evidence would pave way for a visit of our judicial commission to Pakistan,” said a source.
Pakistan has said it was necessary to send the commission to India as part of the judicial process of 26/11 case and had promised it would do so within a few weeks. The Pak judicial commission was to visit Mumbai to take the statement of the magistrate R V Sawant Waghule, who recorded convict Ajmal Amir Kasab’s confessional statement, Investigating Officer Ramesh Mahale and the doctor who carried out postmortem of the terrorists.
