Upset over the ruling of a Pakistani court on the 26/11 case, India on Tuesday said evidence collected by a Pakistani judicial commission in India had evidential value to punish those involved in the worst ever terrorist attack in the country.


Singh said New Delhi was aware of the ruling of the Pakistani court and would seek a copy of it from the authorities there through Indian High Commission in Islamabad.

"After we go through the judgement we will discuss with the Pakistan government as to what they propose to do about it," he said.

He was reacting to the ruling of a Rawalpindi court on Tuesday which said all findings of a judicial commission that visited India were illegal and could not be made part of the evidence against the 26/11 accused.

"Our belief is that the evidence collected by the commission is of evidential value," home secretary RK Singh told reporters in New Delhi.

The court is hearing the terror case against seven 26/11 accused, including Lashkar-e-Taiba commander Zakiur Rehman Lakhvi.

In a setback to the prosecution of seven suspects charged with involvement in the 2008 Mumbai attacks, judge of the Rawalpindi based anti-terrorism court No 1, Chaudhry Habib-ur-Rehman said in an order that all the proceedings and the report of the Pakistani judicial commission that visited Mumbai in March were "illegal".
