Pak courts flawed on 26/11 terror attack in Mumbai

A top Pakistani court has allowed the examination of a boat used by the 10 LeT terrorists to reach India for carrying out the 2008 Mumbai attack, overturning an anti-terrorism court verdict which it termed "flawed".

"The Islamabad High Court has set aside the verdict of trial court (Anti-Terrorism Court) in Mumbai case for not allowing/sending of a commission to Karachi for inspection of Al-Fauz boat used by Mumbai attack terrorists," Chaudhry Azhar, prosecution chief in the Mumbai attack case, said.

He said the high court termed the trial court decision "flawed and not in accordance with law" and allowed examination of the boat in the port city of Karachi.

The prosecution in May had challenged the trial court's decision to reject its plea to form a commission to examine the boat 'Al-Fauz' used by Mumbai attack terrorists so that the vessel could be made "case property".

Al-Fauz is in the custody of the Pakistani authorities in Karachi, from where the 10 terrorists, armed with AK-47 assault rifles and hand grenades, had left for India to carry out the Mumbai attack that claimed 166 lives.

Mid-sea the Pakistani terrorists changed the boats, trapped an Indian fisherman's boat off Gujarat, shot him dead and sailed in to Mumbai to carry out a killing spree. One of them, Kasab, was caught alive by a constable and civilians, and later hanged by the Anti-terrorism court in Mumbai.
