26/11 case: Lahore HC rejects Lakhvi's plea
Islamabad, Dec 3: Lahore High Court on Thursday, Dec 3, rejected Zakiur Rehman Lakhvi's two petitions challenging his indictment for involvement in the 26/11 attacks.

A Rawalpindi-based bench directed the anti-terrorism court to consider Lakhvi's objections against his indictment under provisions of the Criminal Procedure Code.

Lakhvi's lawyer Khwaja Sultan Ahmed claimed during proceedings that the prosecution had no incriminating evidence against his client.

He also said the statement given to Indian authorities by Ajmal Amir Kasab, the lone attacker captured in Mumbai, is not admissible in the anti-terrorism court.

However, the judges told Ahmed such issues could be addressed only when the evidence, including Kasab's statement, is presented during the trial in the anti-terrorism court.

Lakhvi filed two petitions in the Lahore High Court in which he has challenged his indictment, and said that there was no evidence and witnesses to prove his involvement.
