LeT terrorists’ trial adjourned in Pakistan

Pak court adjourns 26/11 trial till September 5

An anti-terrorism court in Pakistan on Saturday (August 29) adjourned the hearing into the trial of five Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) militants, including the outfit’s operations commander Zakiur Rehman Lakhvi, till September 5.

The special Adiala Jail court also restricted the in-camera trial of the five accused of the Mumbai terror attacks citing security reasons.

Though the court’s order has not been made public, sources said it stated that the proceedings would be kept totally secret and ‘not published’ in any manner as the case had implications for ‘national security’ and ‘national interests’.

The trial court also asked the Federal Investigation Agency to submit its finding before it during the next hearing.

During the last hearing on July 25 as well, the journalists were barred from covering the trial which is being conducted inside the prison for security reasons.
