A Pakistani judicial commission’s visit to India to cross-examine witnesses of the Mumbai terror attacks has been delayed because of the 10-day Ganesh Chaturthi festival, a defence lawyer said on Tuesday. “The Indian government informed us that the visit (planned for) tomorrow cannot take place due to Ganesh Chaturthi as the courts (in Mumbai) are closed,” lawyer Riaz Akram Cheema said.
“They will propose to the Pakistan government new dates in a week,” Cheema, part of the team of lawyers defending the seven Pakistani accused, told PTI. The crucial visit has been delayed twice this month.
While India had given a date for early September, the team could not leave due to the cancellation of a Pakistan International Airlines flight. The visit was then fixed for September 7 but it was again cancelled due to the non-availability of a flight.
