A special court on Thursday screened closed circuit television footage of the terror attack at Chhatarapati Shivaji Terminus on November 26 last which showed movements of Pakistani gunmen Mohammed Ajmal Kasab and Abu Ismail, policemen and public.

The quality of the footage was poor and the faces of Kasab and Ismail were not clearly seen.

Footage of cameras in the main waiting hall of the terminus, where maximum casualties took place, was not available since the devices placed there were not functioning on the day and were scheduled for maintenance.

Footage recorded by the cameras on the suburban section of the terminus was mainly screened in the court.

The entire footage, recorded after 2130 hours on November 26, runs into one hour and fifteen minutes, but the court has
viewed only 15 minutes which were relevant to the case.

Images from one camera showed the two gunmen moving about in the main waiting hall of CST and one of them firing at
police personnel from a distance.

Kasab, the arrested gunman, sat silently in the accused dock and did not react to the footage that was being screened. Both the gunmen are also seen going out of the terminus at about 2209 hours and then returning back inside at about
2216 hours.
