26/11 case: No reprieve for Lakhvi from court

26/11 case: No reprieve for Lakhvi from court
Islamabad: The Lahore High Court on Thursday disposed LeT operations commander Zakiur Rehman Lakhvi's 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.

Lakhvi's counsel filed two petitions in the Rawalpindi bench of the Lahore High Court on Wednesday challenging his indictment by the anti-terrorism court last month.

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.
