26/11 chargesheet by Wednesday; LeT men in Pak to be named


Mumbai:::::: Police will file a 5,000-page chargesheet on Wednesday into the 26/11 audacious terror strikes that had held the entire financial capital of the country to hostage for 72 hours in which over 180 people were killed.

The lone survivor terrorist of Pakistan-based Lashkar-e-Taiba — Mohammad Ajmal Amir Iman Qasab — will face charges ranging from waging war against the country to murder, attempt to murder and other provisions of the Indian Penal Code and under the stringent MCOCA, officials said.

He is also being charged under the Unlawful Activities Prevention Act. “The nearly 5000-page chargesheet is ready and will be filed before a Metropolitan Magistrate on Wednesday,” special public prosecutor Ujwal Nikam said on Tuesday without going into further details.

Besides Qasab and nine other Lashker terrorists, the chargesheet is expected to name around 20 more wanted accused, believed to be hiding in Pakistan, including Yosuf Muzzamil and Zaki-ur Rehman Lakhvi, the mastermind of the 26/11 carnage.

Qasab and his associate Mohammed Ismail Khan had allegedly gunned down ATS chief Hemant Karkare, DIG Ashok Kamte and encounter specialist Ashok Kamte in an encounter near the Cama hospital, besides killing commuters at CST station.
