India protests delay in Mumbai attack trial in Pakistan

NEW DELHI: With the latest adjournment of the 26/11 Mumbai attack trial in Pakistan, India on Friday summoned Pakistan’s deputy high commissioner to New Delhi and recorded a protest in this regard.

India’s Ministry of External Affairs summoned Pakistan’s deputy high commissioner to lodge a complaint, while India’s deputy high commissioner visited the Foreign Office in Islamabad to register a similar grievance regarding the delay in proceedings.

Pakistan’s Foreign Office (FO) spokeswoman Tasneem Aslam in a press briefing had said that Mumbai attack case was under way but also drew attention to the lack of progress in the case relating to the 2007 Samjhota train attack in India in which 70 people, mostly Pakistanis, were killed.
