Lahore: The Indian government is "reluctant" to send its 24 witnesses to Pakistan to record their statements in the Mumbai terror attack case, the prosecution told an anti-terrorism court conducting the trial.

The anti-terrorism court held the hearing in the case at Adiyala Jail Rawalpindi after a "break" of over four months.

"The prosecution told the court that the Indian government is reluctant to send 24 Indian witnesses to Pakistan to record their statements in the case," a court official told PTI after the hearing.

The court was also informed that the Indian government had not only refused to send the witnesses but also demanded re-investigation of the case.

Prosecution said the Indian witnesses statements are needed to conclude the Mumbai case which has been pending for the last seven years. "The case may not be concluded till the Indian witnesses appear in the trial court," the prosecution said.The court adjourned the hearing till March 22.

In a reply to Pakistan's letter regarding sending 24 Indian witnesses here to record their statements in the Mumbai attack case, New Delhi has asked Islamabad to re-investigate the case and also demanded trial of Jammat-ud-Dawah chief Saeed and Lashkar-e-Taiba operation commander Zakiur Rehman Lakhvi in the light of evidence it (India) had provided to it.

An interior ministry official had told PTI that Pakistan had no issue to try any suspect of Mumbai case provided it had evidence against him.
