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.
