New Delhi: A Delhi court today issued
non-bailable warrants (NBWs) against two serving Pakistani
Army Majors and three LeT operatives for plotting terror
attacks in Delhi, Mumbai and other parts of the country.

The two Pakistani officers-Major Iqbal and Major
Sameer Ali along with Lashkar operatives Sajid Majid, Syed
Abdur Rehman and Illyas Kashmiri were charged by the National
Investigation Agency (NIA) with planning terror strikes in the
key metros.

"I issue NBWs against the five accused persons. The
warrants are returnable on October 7," District and Sessions
Judge S P Garg said.

The court, however, did not allow the plea of NIA
seeking NBWs against JuD Chief Hafiz Saeed and Lashkar`s
operation commander Zaki-ur-Rehman Lakhvi as a Mumbai court
has already issued NBWs against them.

"A Mumbai court has already issued the NBWs against
them. This is sufficient for getting red corner notices issued
against them."

The court in its eight-page order has dealt with the
contentions of NIA which said issuance of NBWs was necessary
for further probe in the case pertaining to national security.
