NEW DELHI (INP) - The Mumbai Metropolitan Magistrate will preside as the Pakistan judicial commission scheduled to arrive next month to authenticate statements of officials involved in 26/11 investigations. Sources said New Delhi conveyed to Islamabad last week that the judicial commission, which wants to authenticate the statements of convict Ajmal Kasab, will have to record the statements in proceedings convened by the metropolitan magistrate. It will be the first ever joint court proceedings between the two countries. It is a unique case, where the lawyers are from Pakistan, the witnesses are from India, and the judge will be an Indian, a top source said. The arrangement was worked out since New Delhi had rejected Pakistans request for Indian witnesses to depose before the court there. While the Pakistani side is yet to officially name the members, New Delhi has reportedly been told informally that the Pakistan Federal Investigation Agencys prosecutor, the defence counsel, and an official each from the Pakistan interior and foreign ministries are coming. The commission is expected to record the statements of Mumbai Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate RV Sawant Waghule and investigating officer Ramesh Mahale, who had recorded Kasabs confession. The Pakistani commission also wants to record the statement of the two doctors who conducted the postmortem examinations of the nine terrorists killed in the attack to bolster their case back home.
