Rawalpindi, Oct.3 (ANI): An anti-terrorism court on Saturday adjourned the hearing into the trial of seven Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) militants, including the outfit's operations commander Zakiur Rehman Lakhvi, till October 10.

The trial, which is being conducted inside the Adiala jail in Rawalpindi for security reasons, has so far been adjourned six times in the past two months.

During the last hearing on September 19, the trial was adjourned till October 3, as the prosecution lawyer and a judge had failed to appear.

Details about the proceedings were not available as a media gag has been put in place.

The special Adiala Jail court has said the trial will take place in camera for security reasons.

Though the court'ss order has not been made public, sources said it stated that the proceedings would be kept totally secret and 'not published' in any manner, as the case had implications for 'national security' and 'national interests'.

While Lakhvi is accused of masterminding the attack, the four others, including LeT's communications expert Zarar Shah, Abu al-Qama, Hamad Amin Sadiq and Shahid Jamil Riaz are being charged as facilitators, managers of funds and for locating hideouts for the attackers in Rawalpindi. (ANI)
