New Delhi, July 12 (ANI): Commodore (retd.) C. Uday Bhaskar on Sunday said that the judicial system in Pakistan has allowed many loopholes to those who have been engaged in terrorism related charges.
He, however, said that India should wait for more definitive official response from Pakistan following the comment of Zakiur Rehman Lakhvi’s lawyer that his client won’t give voice samples in the 26/11 Mumbai attack probe.
“I think this kind of response from Lakhvi’s Lawyer was more or less predictable, means that the Pakistani judicial system has in a way allowed many loopholes to those who have been accused of various terrorism related charges. And my sense is that we have to wait for more definitive official response from Pakistan,” he told ANI.
“This is not the end of the story; this is what Lakhvi’s lawyer is saying. I think we should wait for the establishment of Pakistan to convey whatever are the steps it proposes to take in keeping with spirit of what Prime Minister Nawaz sharif and Prime Minister Narendra Modi had discussed in Ufa,” he added.
A joint media statement released after the between Prime Minister Modi and his Pakistani counterpart in Russia on Friday outlined that both sides had decided to expedite the 26/11 Mumbai attacks trial, including additional information like providing voice samples.
The joint statement also said that both sides had agreed to hold a meeting in New Delhi between the two NSAs to discuss all issues connected to terrorism. (ANI)
