India has pressed Pakistan for the voice samples of the seven accused in the 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks and sought speedy trial of the case in that country to bring to justice the perpetrators of the strikes.

Home Minister P. Chidambaram made the request to his Pakistani counterpart Rehman Malik when they met here last night on the sidelines of the SAARC Interior Ministers meeting.

“The Indian Home Minister referred to the requests made by the Home Ministry some of which were pending with Pakistan since their last meeting,” a joint statement issued this morning said.

Though the statement did not specify what the requests were, it said they related to some of those pending with the Pakistani Interior Ministry.
