'Legal complications may surface with fresh evidences in Mumbai attack case'

Islamabad, Wed, 14 Mar 2012 ANI

Islamabad, Mar 14 (ANI): A counsel for Lashkar-e-Taiba commander Zakiur Rehman Lakhvi, one of four possible major planners behind the November 2008 Mumbai terror attacks, has said 'legal complications maysurface with fresh evidences.'


Despite India's refusal to allow Pakistani lawyers to question Ajmal Kasab, an eight-member commission comprising defence lawyers, prosecutors and a court official will travel to India on March 15 to gather evidence for the prosecution of seven suspects linked to the Mumbai attacks.


"With this visit, of course, there will be some progress in investigation to proceed the cases further. But legal complications will likely surface with fresh evidences," The Express Tribune quoted Lakhvi's counsel Khawaja Haris Ahmed, as saying.


"The case with new evidences in 26/11 trial may take a new turn now," he added.


This first of its kind visit comes at a time when Pakistan has indicted seven alleged conspirators captured in 2009. Investigators have also said that they need to gather more evidence in India before the case proceeds further in a Pakistani court.


However, a senior Interior Ministry official said that India accepted Pakistan's request only when Islamabad withdrew its demand of interviewing Kasab.


The panel members will stay in New Delhi for 24 hours, and the visiting panel, accompanied by security officials, will travel to Mumbai on March 16. The commission will record the statements of the magistrate who recorded the confession of Ajmal Kasab, the lone surviving attacker on Saturday. (ANI)
