Zakiur Rehman Lakhvi, adjourned the hearing in the case till
The proceedings at the Adiala Jail in Rawalpindi,
where judge Malik Mohd Akram Awan is hearing the case for

"maximum" time to challenge a Lahore High Court order that
said the trial of the seven suspects could not be separated
from that of Kasab and Ansari, who are currently in the
custody of Indian authorities.
The prosecution also said it needed time to challenge
the anti-terrorism court`s decision to dismiss its application
to name Kasab and Ansari as "proclaimed offenders" or

High Court and Supreme Court.

adjourned the matter.

government had been approached to ask Interpol to issue Red
Corner notices for Ansari and Kasab.

fugitives as they were in the custody of Indian authorities.

said the Interpol had been approached today to issue Red
Corner notices against Kasab and Ansari.
