The Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) has revealed that to bring the guilty of the 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks to book, the Foreign Secretary S. Jaishankar has written to his Pakistan counterpart and has suggested ways by which the trial could be further expedited through cooperation with a legal channel, on Thursday.
“The trial in the Mumbai terror attack and Pakistan has not moved expeditiously. Although, it is soon going to be eight years since that dastardly attack took place. Now, to bring the guilty to book, our foreign secretary has recently written to his Pakistani counterpart further suggesting ways in which the trial could be expedited through cooperation through the legal channel,” MEA official spokesperson Vikas Swarup told a press briefing.
