A UK court on Tuesday rejected India’s plea to dismiss Pakistan’s claim to nearly Rs 350 crore under the Hyderabad Fund case, pushing the matter for a full trial.

In a release, Pakistan Foreign Office said, “The English High Court rejected Indian attempt to strike out Pakistan’s claim to the Hyderabad Fund, on June 21, 2016…India failed to persuade the Court that Pakistan’s position was untenable and that it could show no legal entitlement to the 35 million GBP sitting in a bank account in the name of the High Commissioner of Pakistan, since September 20, 1948.”
