Pakistan court denies access to voice samples of 26/11 suspects

Islamabad, Jan 28: A Pakistani court today dismissed a petition seeking voice samples of 26/11 mastermind Zakiur Rehman Lakhvi and six other suspects in the case, marking it as the latest in a series of reversals in Pakistan's apparent intent to bring the perpetrators of the ghastly attack to justice. 

The prosecution had filed an application in the Islamabad High Court seeking voice samples of the suspects to compare it with the communication intercepted by Indian intelligence and then present it before the anti-terrorism court (ATC) as evidence against the seven suspects in the Mumbai attack case.

However, the petition was dismissed by the Islamabad High Court on Monday. In 2011 and 2015 as well, requests regarding obtaining voice samples of Lakhvi had been turned down by the trial court on grounds that "no such law exists that allows obtaining of voice sample of an accused".

The prosecution's petition said the Indian intelligence agencies had intercepted communication between the suspects and the terrorists in connection with the Mumbai attack in 2008
