A case pertaining to 26/11 terror attacks has been registered in USA in which some Pakistani nationals have been interrogated, a FBI agent said in his testimony before a special court in Mumbai on Thursday, but refused to disclose the names of people quizzed during the probe.

The case has been registered in Los Angeles as six Americans had been killed in the 26/11 attack in Mumbai, the witness, whose name has been withheld, told special public prosecutor Ujjwal Nikam.

The witness said investigations were still on and some Pakistani nationals have been interrogated.
However, he refused to divulge the names of Pakistani nationals who have been interrogated.
Prosecutor Nikam told PTI that investigations in the case filed by FBI in Los Angeles would cover conspiracy and role played by conspirators in the terror attacks.

Nikam said the case was registered in USA because six Americans were killed in the attacks. The US laws provide for initiating investigations in case of murder of American nationals outside the country, he added.
