26/11: Court warrants against Faheem, Sabauddin

A sessions court has issued warrants against Faheem Ansari and Sabauddin Ahmed asking the Uttar Pradesh police to produce the duo on September 23.



Mumbai: A sessions court here has issued
warrants against Faheem Ansari and Sabauddin Ahmed asking the
Uttar Pradesh police to produce the duo on September 23, as
the Bombay High Court has admitted state`s appeal against
their acquittal in the 26/11 terror attack case.

The warrants were issued on August 27 by Principal
Sessions Judge M L Tahaliyani, who was also the trial judge in
the same case.

The High Court had on August 12 admitted an appeal filed
by the Maharashtra government challenging the acquittal of Faheem
and Sabauddin in the 26/11 terror attack case. The court also
ordered that in view of admission of state`s appeal both the
accused may be produced before a sessions court here.

Accordingly, warrants have been sent to UP police as
Sabauddin is lodged in Lucknow jail while Faheem is kept in
Bareilly jail. Both are entitled to seek bail after they are
produced before a sessions court here, Crime Branch officer
Ramesh Mahale said here.

Meanwhile, the High Court would tomorrow hear the matter
pertaining to confirmation of death penalty given to lone
surviving Pakistani terrorist Ajmal Kasab in the 26/11 terror
attack case.

Kasab`s lawyers Amin Solkar and Farhana Shah have not yet
filed appeal challenging the death penalty awarded to the
Pakistani terrorist.

"We might seek time from the High Court tomorrow as the
appeal is not ready," said Solkar.
