Mumbai: The 26/11 trial in the anti-terror court here is not only against Pakistan national Ajmal Kasab but also against those who had plotted the sinister conspiracy to attack Mumbai, according to special public prosecutor Ujjwal Nikam.

"We are meticulously leading evidence in this case to ensure that Pakistan uses it in keeping with the provisions of their criminal procedure code to bring the conspirators to book," Nikam said at a function here last night.

"The prosecution has attempted to expose diabolical designs of Lashkar-e-Taiba to send Fidayeens like Kasab to de-stabilise India," Nikam told Marathi actress Sampada Joglekar in an interview before a huge public gathering.

Sanjay Govilkar, who had grappled with Kasab to disarm him and capture him alive along with other policemen after the terror attack on November 26 last, said "incidents like these should bring all the people together to fight against terrorism."

On the occasion, Nikam alongwith Govilkar and Kavita Karkare, widow of slain police officer Hemant Karkare, released Marathi version of a book on 26/11 attacks titled "Operation Black Tornado" written by senior journalist Jitendra Dixit.

Speaking on the occasion, Dixit said the electronic media was criticised for its bold coverage on Mumbai attacks because conspirators in Pakistan had guided terrorists by watching television. The book attempts to clear misconceptions people have about the media, he said.
