world Updated: Jul 25, 2009 18:08 IST

A Pakistani anti-terror court on Saturday adjourned till August 29 the trial of five LeT operatives, including its operations commander Zakiur Rehman Lakhvi, accused of involvement in the Mumbai attacks.

Judge Baqir Ali Rana of anti-terror court no 2, who is conducting the trial in the high-security Adiala Jail in the garrison city of Rawalpindi, put off the matter after hearing arguments by the prosecution and defence, sources said.

Journalists are barred from covering the trial being conducted inside the prison for security reasons and specific details of today's proceedings were not immediately available.

However, sources said the counsel for the Federal Investigation Agency, which probed the Mumbai attacks and arrested the five Lashkar-e-Toiba (LeT) operatives, argued that the proceedings should be conducted in-camera in view of the sensitivity of the matter.

The counsel for the five LeT operatives submitted petitions seeking copies of the First Information Reports and two chargesheets drawn up against the accused by the FIA, the sources said.
