In a rare gesture, Maharashtra Home Minister R R Patil today attended the proceedings in the 26/11 terror attack case along with Minister of State for Home Ramesh Bagwe in a special court in Mumbai.

Patil's visit assumes significance in the wake of the prosecution opening its final arguments against lone surviving Pakistani gunman Ajmal Kasab and two Indian national Faheem Ansari and Sabauddin Ahmed.

Unprecedented security measures were undertaken in view of the ministers' visit.

While Kasab is charged with killing 166 persons in the attack, Sabahuddin and Ansari are facing charges of drawing maps of targets and passing them on militant outfit LeT for executing the terror strikes.
