Lahore High Court postpones judgment on Lakhvi trial transfer case
Lahore, Jan.22 (ANI): The Lahore High Court (LHC) has reserved its verdict on a petition moved by Zakiur Rehman Lakhvi, the mastermind of the November 2008 Mumbai terror attacks, seeking transfer of his trial from the Rawalpindi anti-terrorism court (ATC) to Lahore.
Lakhvi, through his counsel, had filed a petition in the court, stating that his life was in danger from Indian intelligence personnel.
It may be noted that the Rawalpindi anti-terrorism court (ATC) is holding an in-camera trial in the Adiala jail due to security reasons.
Lakhvi, has also filed another petition pleading that proceedings against him should be quashed and he should be acquitted on grounds that there is no evidence or witness to prove his involvement in the ghastly terror attack on India's financial capital.
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. (ANI)
