The hundredth witnesses deposed before the special court on Tuesday in the ongoing 26/11 trial.

Forensic expert Dr Sunil Javde, who has conducted over 4,000 post-mortems, told special Judge ML Tahiliyani that he had conducted post-mortems on 14 victims who had succumbed to the bullets fired by Mohammed Ajmal Amir Kasab, the lone surviving suspect in the terror attack on November 2008.

Javde gave detailed description of the eight bullet injuries that assistant Police Sub-Inspector Tukaram Ombale suffered after he pounced on Kasab and neutralised him.

Javde said one of the bullets had destroyed Ombale’s right lung, trachea, bronchus, oesophagus and the neck structure.

Another bullet had fractured Ombale’s vertebra, Javde added, while explaining the possible cause of Ombale’s death.

The trial, which started on April 15, has till now completed three out of 12 cases registered against Kasab, and two alleged Lashkar-e-Tayyeba operatives, Fahim Ansari and Sabahuddin Ahmed.

Earlier in the day, the court examined eight witnesses including six police officers and two doctors. The doctors spoke on how they had either treated the victims, while police gave details of the panchnama on those who died in the attack.

The court on Wednesday is likely to examine witnesses who saw Kasab and his partner Ismail Khan at Cama Hospital on November 26.
