ISLAMABAD: In a new twist to the 2007 Samjhauta Train Blast case — the final verdict of which was expected to come on Monday — a Pakistan national Rahila Wakil moved an application through an Indian advocate and requested the Pakistan-based eyewitnesses and witnesses be summoned to depose before the court, reports foreign media.

The applicant from Dhingrawali village in Hafizabad district of Punjab claimed her father Mohammad Wakil died in the train blast that had left 68 dead. Rahila Wakil also claimed that the Pakistan based eyewitnesses were not issued summons and they were willing to appear before the court. She also said the eyewitnesses had 'no knowledge' about the developments in the case.

"Now on March 14 after receiving replies from all the concerned parties. ... In case it is dismissed, verdict can come on March 14. In case this application is accepted more witnesses will be summoned," an advocate, said.
