A team of Indian legal experts has extended its visit to Pakistan till Monday to finalise the terms of reference of a judicial commission that is expected to visit India next year to gather evidence on the 2008 Mumbai terror attacks.
The four-member team, including legal experts from the Home and External Affairs ministries, was earlier scheduled to return on Saturday after the conclusion of two days of talks with a Pakistani team led by Attorney General Irfan Qadir. The team's visit was extended due to slow progress in the discussions to finalise the terms of reference for the Pakistani judicial commission, sources told PTI.
The two sides are discussing several contentious and complex issues, including the cross-examination of witnesses.
The Pakistani side wants to cross-examine the police officer who led the probe into the Mumbai attacks, the magistrate who recorded lone surviving attacker Ajmal Kasab's confessional statement and two doctors who conducted autopsies of nine terrorists killed during the attacks.
