In an interview with CNN-IBN, Malik said, We have enough evidence and I am quite hopeful that they will be convicted. But if I say some thing much, that means I'm overstepping my position because the matter has to be decided by the court."
He added, "What I am confident is that all the evidence which has been collected, has been placed before the court and they will be convicted."
Admitting India's unhappiness over the slow proceedings in the trial, the interior minister said, "And for the fast track you know that there are certain problems in Evidence Act, and according to the Evidence Act we needed some information to be certified from the Indian authorities."
Expressing his gratitude to the Indian authorities for allowing a judicial committee from Pakistan to collect evidence, he said, "I'm really grateful to the Indian authorities for allowing our commission to go, and once it is there and after fulfilling its assignment it comes back, the case will be on fast track."
Malik also assured Pakistan's intention in bringing the masterminds of 26/11 attacks to justice and said, "The intention of Pakistan is clear. Our prosecutors are working hard and once those legal formalities are over we will expedite the process."
