New Delhi: Pakistan Interior Minister Rehman Malik has said that Pakistani investigators have collected enough evidence against the masterminds of the Mumbai 2008 terror attacks and he is confident that the courts will convict them.

India has been unhappy over the slow pace of trial of the 26/11 masterminds in Pakistan. Most of the recent hearings have been immediately adjourned by the judge.

Malik, however, admitted that the trial was not going as fast as India wanted.

He appreciated that India had agreed to allow a judicial commission from Pakistan to visit and collect evidence. 'I'm really grateful to the Indian authorities for allowing our commission to go, and once it is there and after fulfilling its assignment it comes back, the case will be on fast track,' he said.

Malik emphasised that Pakistan had every intention of prosecuting the 26/11 masterminds. 'The intention of Pakistan is clear. Our prosecutors are working hard and once those legal formalities are over we will expedite the process,' he said.

He thanked Indian Home Minister P. Chidambaram for the success of the meeting of the home secretaries last month.
