26/11 case: warrant against two Pakistan Army officials

A sessions court here has issued non-bailable warrants against Pakistani Army officials Major Abdul Rehman Pasha and Major Iqbal in the 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks case. While Major Pasha has retired, the prosecution believes Major Iqbal is still serving as an ISI official in Pakistan, as disclosed by U.S.-born Lashkar-e-Taiba terrorist David Coleman Headley, an approver in the case. The officials are shown as wanted accused in the chargesheet filed by the city police. Additional sessions judge S.V. Yarlagadda on January 21 allowed an application filed by special public prosecutor Ujjwal Nikam. The court is presently conducting trial against alleged LeT operative Sayyed Zabiuddin Ansari alias Abu Jundal in the 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks. Mr. Nikam said the role of the two Pakistani Army officials was revealed further during Headley’s testimony. Headley had claimed that during the conspiracy to commit the terror attacks in Mumbai, Major Iqbal and Major Pasha were present at the meetings where targets were selected. LeT’s Sajeed Mir, Abu Kaahfa and Zaki-ur-Rehman Lakhvi were also present at the meetings. Mr. Nikam said Headley’s testimony is not the only evidence against Major Pasha and Major Iqbal, and that the prosecution also has in its possession corroborative documentary evidence.
