India Wednesday issued seven-day visas to members of the Pakistani judicial commission that will visit on September 21 to cross-examine the Mumbai terror attack witnesses in order to carry forward the much-delayed trial here.

“We have issued the visas today and the passports would be handed over today itself,” a diplomatic source told PTI here.

Sources said the eight-member commission had sought visas for four-five days but the High Commission has given them seven-day visas. They added that the visas had been given for Mumbai,Delhi,Agra and Amritsar.

The commission members would be travelling to India through the Wagah border. The commission was earlier scheduled to leave for India on September 11 but the visit was postponed due to the 10-day Ganesh festival.
