Awaiting Pak reply to send team on 26/11 attack

New Delhi: India is awaiting a reply from Pakistan on its request to send a team there to question some suspects in the Mumbai terror attack case before it decides on allowing a commission from Islamabad, Home Minister P Chidambaram said on Tuesday.

Addressing his monthly press conference, he said India has asked Pakistan to allow a team to question some people there suspected to be involved in the 26/11 Mumbai carnage.

"We are awaiting an answer for the question that we have put forth," Chidambaram said.

He added that the documentary evidence which Pakistan wanted from India will be provided to them in the next few days.

The Home Minister said in-principle India has agreed to allow a commission from Pakistan to visit here in connection with the 26/11 investigations.

"We just agreed to allow a commission to come to India to record the evidence of the Investigating Officer, the Magistrate, who recorded the statements, and some doctors, who conducted the post mortem. We are awaiting a reply to our questions," Chidambaram said.

To a question, he said "It does not mean one way or the other. We will take a view once we get a final and firm answer."
