India’s Ministry of External Affairs called on Pakistan for an expeditious trial into the 26/11 Mumbai terror attack case on Friday. It also expressed “deep anguish” as the families of victims of the 26/11 attack have still not got justice even after 13 years.
“It is a matter of deep anguish that even after 13 years of this heinous terror attack, the families of 166 victims from 15 countries across the globe still await closure, with Pakistan showing little sincerity in bringing the perpetrators to justice,” said the MEA in a release.
A senior diplomat from the High Commission of Pakistan in India was handed over a ‘Note Verbale reiterating India’s call for an expeditious trial in the Mumbai terror attacks case, and calling on the Government of Pakistan to abide by its commitment to not allow territories under its control for terrorism against India’.
India remembers the victims of 26/11 attacks on its 13th anniversary and continues to make every effort for swift justice.
