Mumbai, Nov 24: The prosecution of the 26/11 teror attack case will wind up on Nov 26, coinciding with the first anniversary of the dastardly strikes that left 166 dead.

Speaking to reporters, special public prosecutor Ujjwal Nikam said, "We have examined 265 witnesses and about ten more are left...the case would be wrapped up by Nov 26, a year after the terror attacks."

"The trial began on May 8 and in about six months we are ready to wind up the case", said Nikam.

The evidence of another 300 witnesses would be adduced by filing their affidavits in the court, Nikam said.

Pakistani terrorist Ajmal Kasab is facing the trial along with two Indians, Faheem Ansari and Sabauddin Ahmed. While Kasab faces charges of multiple murders, others are charged with conspiracy.

After prosecution closes its case, defence lawyers may exercise their right to examine their witnesses. Then the accused would give their statements to the court on what they have to say about the evidence adduced against them.

Finally, the court would give verdict after hearing arguments
