Commission in Pakistan to inspect boat ‘used’ in 26/11 attacks

Karachi, Sep 28 (IANS) An Anti-Terrorism Court in Pakistan has ordered that a judicial commission would visit Karachi to inspect a boat which was allegedly used in the 2008 Mumbai attacks.

An ATC judge on Tuesday heard the Mumbai attack case and accepted a request filed by the Federal Investigation Agency to inspect the boat “Alfoz” in the port city. The FIA had requested the court to send a judicial commission to examine the boat as it was difficult to produce it before the court, the Associated Press of Pakistan reported.

India’s Foreign Ministry spokesperson Vikas Swarup had on September 15 said that Foreign Secretary S. Jaishankar had written to his Pakistani counterpart to speed up the trial, which has been pending for almost eight years.

In his letter, Jaishankar suggested several ways in which Pakistan could bring the perpetrators of the attack to justice, including cooperation through legal channels.

Over 166 people, including foreigners, were killed and over 300 wounded when gunmen attacked landmarks in Mumbai on November 26, 2008, triggering three days of gunfights.
