Mumbai: Four witnesses, including three
policemen, on Monday told the trial court that Taj Hotel was
ransacked during the 26/11 terror strikes by Laskhar-e-Toiba
(LeT) militants and several articles were found scattered on
the floor.

Articles recovered from the five-star hotel included a
Global Positioning System (GPS) instrument, a mobile phone,
cartridges and two hand bags of slain terrorists, they said.
The witnesses were deposing before judge ML Tahaliyani,
conducting the trial in a special court housed in the high
security central prison at Arthur Road jail.

During examination by special public prosecutor Ujjwal
Nikam, the witnesses who had drawn `panchnamas` identified
the articles seized by police in their presence.
Lone surviving Pakistani gunman Ajmal Kasab and two
Indians, Faheem Ansari and Sabauddin Ahmed, are facing charges
of taking part in the conspiracy and killing 166 people.

Altogether, 194 witnesses have deposed so far and the
prosecution is expected to examine about 35 more, said Nikam.
