Rawalpindi, Jan 20: LeT operations chief Zakiur Rehman Lakhvi has filed a petition before the Lahore High Court's Rawalpindi bench seeking his acquittal in the 26/11 case.

In his petition, Lakhvi has pleaded that proceedings against him should be quashed.

He should also be acquitted on grounds that there is no evidence or witness to prove his involvement in the terror attacks.

"The judge had failed to appreciate the fact that there was no witness against him and no incriminating material had been recovered from his custody or on his information by the investigating agency." Lakhvi's petition said.

Earlier, the court in its verdict had rejected Lakhvi's petition.

Lakhvi also argued that the prosecution had no evidence to prove that he had imparted terror training to Ajmal Amir Kasab, the lone surviving gunman.

Seven Lashkar operatives including Lakhvi, communications expert Zarar Shah, Abu al-Qama, Hamad Amin Sadiq and Shahid Jamil Riaz are being tried by the anti-terrorism court.
