Rawalpindi, Dec 3: LeT operations chief Zakiur Rehman Lakhvi has challenged his indictment in the 26/11 case, saying there is not enough evidence against him.

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.

The petition stated that there was no evidence and witnesses against Lakhvi except Ajmal Kasab, the lone surviving Mumbai gunman, and five policemen involved in a case registered in Pakistan.

"Kasab's statement before Indian authorities was not admissible to the case registered in Islamabad and according to law a statement given in a specific case could not be used in some other case," the petition stated.

The second petition challenges Kasab's trial separately under Section 540-A of CrPC.

On Nov 25, Pakistan's anti-terror court had indicted Lakhvi and six others for their role in planning and helping execute the attacks.
