A Pakistani court has dismissed a petition filed by the government to obtain voice samples of seven suspects charged with involvement in the 2008 Mumbai attacks because the investigation agency did not pursue the matter.

The Islamabad high court gave its ruling on the government’s petition due to “non-prosecution” by the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA), Hindustan Times reported.

This was the second time the high court dismissed the FIA’s petition since 2012 simply because the prosecution did not appear before the to argue the case.The prosecution had sought the voice samples of the suspects, including Lashkar-e-Taiba operations commander Zakiur Rehman Lakhvi, to compare them with intercepts of phone and VoIP communications between the attackers and their Pakistan-based handlers.

Intercepts of the communications were provided by India soon after the attacks in November 2008 that killed 166 people and injured hundreds more. India has been pushing Pakistan to obtain the voice samples. Pakistan has argued that under the country’s laws, such samples cannot be obtained without the permission of the suspects.(Agencies)
