Three top NSG Commandoes depose before 26/11 trial court
Mumbai: Three top Commandoes of National
Security Guards (NSG), who fought with terrorists during 26/11
attacks, today deposed in-camera before the trial court here
through video conference.
In keeping with the directives of the Bombay High Court,
media was not allowed to cover the procedure.
The witnesses were examined by the Judge M L Tahaliyani
and cross-examined by Special Public Prosecutor Ujjwal Nikam
and defence lawyer Abbas Kazmi.
The Union government had moved the High Court against
an order of the trial court which had issued summons to NSG
Commandoes to depose about their combat with the terrorists.
The Centre had contended that the skills and techniques
used by NSG in fight with terrorists could not be disclosed in
the interest of national security.
In the trial court also, Prosecutor Nikam had opposed
the deposition of NSG commandoes on the same ground.
After hearing all the parties, the High Court allowed
the special court to examine NSG commandoes but directed to
keep their deposition in-camara.
