New Delhi: A Pakistani judicial commission, which will interview key persons linked to the probe into the 2008 Mumbai terror attacks, will be allowed to visit India in the first week of February as the Bombay High Court has given its consent for it.

The High Court has informed the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) that the in-principle approval for the visit of the Pakistani Judicial Commission has been given and the team may come in first week of February.

The MHA will soon convey the High Court's approval for the visit to Pakistan through diplomatic channels, official sources said.

However, it is not clear immediately when the Pakistani delegation's visit will actually take place considering the domestic situation in that country.

The Pakistani commission will take the statements of Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate R V Sawant Waghule and Investigating Officer Ramesh Mahale, who have recorded the confessional statement of Ajmal Kasab, the lone surviving terrorist involved in the 26/11 attacks, to pursue the case in Pakistan.

It also wanted to take the statements of the two doctors who carried out the post mortem of the terrorists killed during the attack.

Pakistan has already issued a gazette notification on the formation of the judicial commission and has listed the members who will represent Pakistan government.

The delegation will include Khalid Qureshi, the head of the Federal Investigation Agency's Special Investigation Group, and Muhammad Azhar Chaudhry and Chaudhry Zulifqar, the two main prosecutors.
