The prosecution in the Mumbai terror attack case today informed the special court that it would examine more than 100 witnesses including those from Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and foreign experts to establish the complicity of Mohamamed Amir Ajmal Kasab and other accused.

Special public prosecutor Ujjwal Nikam said about 1,820 witnesses have been cited in the case but only 109 potential witnesses will be examined.

Nikam gave a graphic account of the evidence gathered by the police against Kasab and co-accused Fahim Ansari and Sabauddin Ahmed.

Nikam said that five Global Positioning System (GPS) instruments have been recovered. "Two GPSs from Taj Mahal hotel, one from Oberoi Hotel and one GPS from Nariman house were recovered after the terror attack. The instruments have been sent for analysis to USA," he said.

The prosecutor said that he would rely upon the experts' opinion on the data pertaining to land and sea routes used by the accused to reach the shores of Mumbai to commit the terror attacks.
