26/11: India not sending witnesses

India has not responded to request and reminders to send the 24 Indian witnesses in the 2008 Mumbai terror attacks case to testify in a Pakistani court, the prosecution told an anti-terrorism court here on Wednesday.

"We are still waiting India's response on the matter. The Foreign Ministry had written to India several months ago and even sent reminders, but the Indian government has not responded to us," a prosecution official told Islamabad Anti-Terrorism Court, hearing the case at Adiala Jail in Rawalpindi.

The official informed the court that Pakistan's Director General, South Asia, had also taken up the matter with India so that the trial is completed at the earliest. The court adjourned the proceedings till November 2.

The official said the case cannot move forward unless India sends the witnesses here to record their statements. 

According to the prosecution, all Pakistani witnesses have recorded their statements.
