NEW DELHI: The Indian government stated on Saturday that it was expecting to acquire voice samples of the handlers of Mumbai attackers and a speedy trial for the seven suspects in custody, including Lashkar-e-Taiba commander Zaikur Rehman Lakhvi, to be conducted in India, Press Trust of India reported.
Home Minister of India Sushilkumar Shinde said that he has contacted Interior Minister Rehman Malik to request the voice samples of those people who directed the 10 terrorists during the terrorist attack.
The Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) last week asked an anti-terrorism court to conduct day-to-day hearings of the Mumbai 2008 attacks case to expedite the trial of the seven arrested suspects.
The alleged mastermind of the attacks Zakiur Rehman and Hammad Amin Sadiq, Shahid Jamil Riaz, Younas Anjum, Jamil Ahmed, Mazhar Iqbal and Abdul Majid were arrested in January 2009.
Up to 166 people were killed while another 170 were injured in the attacks, which took place in November 2008.

"@Tony Singh:Don’t worry. we will pay you in the same coin!:" If this is so then come on.You are always most welcome and what are you waiting for?And we know it very well that you have done so various times in the past and also are doing now in Balochistan and Gilgit Baltistan.Your this statement is not new and you are proving and showing your old habit as you have been doing as usual in the past with Pakistan.....
All in all, I have zero love for 'kasab' or his cause. I don't support him or people like him justifying killing others in name of religion. My only beef with you Indians is, if you do say he is a Pakistani and was sent by Pakistan military/ ISI please be able to provide solid proofs. These confessions by him don't cut it. I want to live on my own life as a Pakistani, i never have or had any problems with any Indians I encountered. So when you blame Pakistan, you include me and countless other people that don't have any aggression towards India. Provide solid proofs and if it fits, ill join you in bad mouthing Pakistanis involved in supporting that idiot.
Its very easy for me to blame RAW for all unrest in Pakistan without any proof as well.
So what's the harm in providing voice samples? It's likely that India already obtained voice samples from the American NSA org and is making the request knowing Pakistan won't cooperate. India won't let this drop anymore than the American's are going to forget OBL magically appearing in Abbottabad.
@M.Ahmer Ali: @Usman: Don't worry. we will pay you in the same coin!
This attitude hasn't brought us to destruction as of today. This attitude has a phrase, that is prove it or shut up. We all know how trustable Indian courts are.
Indian leaders give death sentence to Ajmal Qasab (because he has been proven murderer) which has been announced by the Indian Supreme Court and end this game now instead of wasting yours and ours time on this issue more and prolonging it by using different tactics to divert the attentions from the other burning and core issues to be resolved on top priority basis as soon as possible between Pakistan and India because there are lots of attention paying issues remained between Pakistan and India yet.......
Jalit Ahmed (India) : Good rebuttal. May your tribe prosper.
Usman ; It is as funny as Pak claiming 40000 lives lost due to WOT which is not its war, as funny as claiming 80 billions lost in WOT when Talilban has been going around for a picnic only and as funny as Malala attack and salala massacre. None of it has any proof except the high mouthed stmts from Pak ministers and trolls.
'give me one day with any terrorist and interrogation tools and you’ll have him confessing he is Indian or whichever nationality you want.'
So, it applies equally to all those Indians in Pakistani jails accused of spying including Sarabjit? Come on. Tell me, yes or no? Mr Richard Headley has spoken out. The whole world has seen Kasav on TV, in VT railway station as well as lying injured on the road and being kicked around by the Bombay police. Don't take it personally. You didn't do it. Just face the truth. You will not be a lesser man; trust me.
@ishqerasool: You and your brethren have brought a bad name to Islam. Islam does not advocate killing of innocent people like they did in the railway station and Taj hotel. What kind of Islam are you practicing in Pakistan I don't know, but you all have embaressed muslims not only in India but rest of the world. I have doubt you are even muslim. I fully support the demands of my country (India) of which I am extremely proud. We don't produce the likes of Kasab.
its funny how ignorant pakistanis can be..the nationality of the 10 terrorist is clear to whole world..even pakistani interior minister has accepted that those attackers were pakistani(though he firstly had denied the same but later accepted)..even geo tv unearthed kasab's village and aired it on tv...but i dnt knw why still many pakistanis keep on denying the fact....this is like adding salt to wounds of victims...and such type of behaviour will produce more and more hatred in india for pakistani people.....if there was strict action taken against the perpetrators.then that could have won many hearts in india..
Should be easy to match the voice samples: they are RAW agents
@Usman: Head in the sand mentality. You believe what you want to believe isn't it? So what if courts in India have examined the case on evidence and merit, conspiracy theorists will keep playing the same tape. Carry on, this attitude has brought your country to a brink.
Its funny to me, how hard Indians are trying to frame Pakistan. Its been how many years now and still they haven't come up with a single solid proof? Dont tell me about "Kasab's" confessions, give me one day with any terrorist and interrogation tools and you'll have him confessing he is Indian or whichever nationality you want.
I think India should do back to catching Pakistani "spies" like that camel and pigeon. Its the only thing India is efficient at.
why don't they get sample of rss terrorist and bjp Zionists who planned the attack ??
Pakistan is resisting to give the voice samples as its entire Establishment will be exposed. However, one day or other, the terrorists will be caught and punished, whether Pakistan wants or likes it or not. India's keeping pressure is good.
