Almost a year after the 26/11 attacks case began in a special court in Mumbai, the trial of Pakistani gunman Ajmal Kasab, accused of slaughtering 166 people, and two Indians charged with taking part in the conspiracy is likely to conclude on Wednesday.

The arguments by prosecution and defence are expected to conclude on Wednesday following which Judge M L Tahaliyani may announce the date for the verdict, Special Public Prosecutor Ujjwal Nikam said on Tuesday.

The prosecution examined as many as 653 witnesses to prove their case that Pakistan-based Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) carried out the dastardly attacks in Mumbai by sending 10 jehadi terrorists from Karachi.

The court also examined four witnesses, including two National Security Guard (NSG) commandos, who led the teams in operations to fight the terrorists.
