India should respect Pak court verdicts: Malik
PRESS TRUST OF INDIA
Islamabad, May 27: Pakistan has said India should accord “similar respect” to verdicts by its courts as shown by it in the Ajmal Kasab case, a day after New Delhi expressed disappointment over the Supreme Court here dismissing pleas against JuD chief Hafiz Saeed’s release from house arrest.
“We had also honoured the Indian court’s decision against Ajmal Kasab,” Interior Minister Rehman Malik told reporters last evening, referring to the death sentence awarded to the Pakistani terrorist by a Mumbai court in the 26/11 case.
Indian authorities should show the similar respect for verdicts of Pakistani courts as that shown by the Pakistan government, he said.
Malik made the remarks a day after the apex court upheld the Lahore High Court’s decision to free Saeed from house arrest and dismissed appeals filed by the federal and Punjab governments challenging his release.
India had expressed disappointment over Pakistan Supreme Court’s decision to uphold the release of Saeed, whom New Delhi has blamed for masterminding the Mumbai attacks.
