A Pakistan court has issued a non-bailable arrest warrant against Faheem Ansari, an alleged Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) operative and 26/11 Mumbai terror attack case accused, for allegedly obtaining a Pakistani passport on fake documents.
The Pakistan court has issued warrant against Faheem, an Indian citizen, for allegedly procuring a Pakistani passport
on fake documents, thereby charging him with committing an offence in that country, sources told PTI.
Special public prosecutor in the 26/11 case, Ujjwal Nikam, confirmed the development but refused to comment on it.
The warrant has been issued but it has yet to reach India, the sources said, adding the procedure would take some
time as it would be forwarded through the Interpol.
Meanwhile, Faheem is facing the trial here for his alleged role in preparing maps of target locations in Mumbai
and handing them over to LeT conspirators in Pakistan for executing the Mumbai terror attacks last November.
Police had recovered a Pakistani passport from Faheem when he was arrested. Details of his passport were sent to
Pakistani authorities, who confirmed that it was genuine.
Prosecutor Nikam had informed the trial court here last week that Pakistan had confirmed the genuineness of the
passport. However, it seems the Pakistani authorities have realised that though genuine, the passport was obtained on the basis of "fake" documents.
