The CBI will soon approach the Interpol seeking a Red Corner Notice against the founder of Lashkar-e-Taiba Hafiz Muhammad Saeed for masterminding the 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks.
The investigating agency has collected all the papers from Mumbai Police which include the non-bailable warrants issued by trial court against Pakistan-based Saeed. The warrant will become the basis for seeking the Red Corner Notice from the Interpol.
"The interpol may issue a Red Corner Notice, once CBI approaches it with a request. The agency will soon approach the Interpol with the request for the notice," sources in the investigating agency said on day.
Non-bailable warrants were issued by a Mumbai Court on June 23 against Saeed and 22 others, including LeT operations commander Zaki-ur-Rehman Lakhvi and suspected military official Col R Saadat Ullah, for allegedly hatching a conspiracy to carry out the November 26, 2008 terror strikes.
Special Judge M L Tahaliyani had issued the warrants asking the Mumbai Police Commissioner and the CBI Director to execute them through the Interpol and produce the absconders before the court soon.
