26/11: Witness quizzed in Pak jail

November 06, 2013 08:21 pm | Updated November 17, 2021 07:22 am IST -  ISLAMABAD:

The trial in the Mumbai terror attacks case continued on Wednesday with the defence counsels cross examining a witness in Adyala jail in Rawalpindi for the entire day.

Special public prosecutor Chaudhury Mohammed Azhar told The Hindu that the witness was the person from whom life jackets, the boat engine, air pump and other articles were bought. The cross examination began by defence council Riaz Cheema and others and was completed by 3.30 pm. As a result no other witness could be taken up for examination.

The case will now be heard on November 20 after Muharram, just before the fifth anniversary of the attacks on November 26. At this hearing three witnesses will be cross examined and the statement of two others will be recorded. The two new witnesses are from the fishing harbour, the ones who saw the terrorists buying the boat and leaving and entering the harbour, the prosecutor said.

He also confirmed that the record of proceedings in a Mumbai court was submitted to the Anti Terrorism Court today.
