Lakhvi seeks transfer of 26/11 case to Lahore
Lahore: LeT operations commander Zakiur Rehman Lakhvi filed a petition seeking transfer of case against him from Rawalpindi to Lahore on Wednesday afternoon. He said he faces a threat to his life.

The Lahore High Court in December 2009 had disposed his petition against indictment over Mumbai attacks.

LeT operations chief Zakiur Rehman Lakhvi, the mastermind of the Mumbai attacks, had challenged his indictment by a Pakistani anti-terrorism court in Lahore High Court and claimed the prosecution does not have enough evidence to prove his involvement in the 26/11 strikes.

The LeT operations commander was indicted along with six other suspects for planning and helping execute the attacks that killed 166 people in India's financial hub last year.

In one petition, Lakhvi claimed there were no evidence and witnesses against him except Ajmal Amir Kasab, the lone attacker captured alive in Mumbai, and five policemen involved in a case registered in Pakistan.

The policemen cited as witnesses by the prosecution had only described Lakhvi as a commander of the LeT and accused him of training people for terrorist activities, he claimed.
