The sessions court at Rampur has refused to part with the original documents purportedly recovered by the Uttar Pradesh Anti-Terrorist Squad (ATS) from an alleged local facilitator of 26/11 Mumbai attacks, Fahim Ahmed Ansari.
The ATS has submitted the original documents which form evidence against Fahim and another alleged local facilitator, Sabauddin Ahmed, in the 26/11 case trial with Rampur sessions court.
Police inspector Omprakash Tripathi, attached to UP ATS, on Tuesday informed the special judge ML Taheliyani that the sessions judge had suggested to them to obtain permission from the high court.
The special court has now given September 24 as the next date for the Uttar Pradesh ATS officials to produce the documents after issuing a fresh letter requesting the Rampur court to handover the documents either to its own sub courts or Tripathi.
Fahim was purportedly carrying nine hand-drawn maps showing important city locations and roads, his Pakistani passport bearing the name Hasan Hamad and an identity card issued to him by Pakistani authorities when he was arrested by Uttar Pradesh Special Task Force on February 10 last year.
