Just a day after India pushed for a speedy trial of the perpetrators of the 26/11 Mumbai attacks, a Pakistani anti-terrorism court on Saturday adjourned for a week the case involving seven suspects, including LeT’s Zakiur Rehman Lakhvi, as prosecution witnesses were not available to record their testimony.

Judge Chaudhry Habib-ur-Rehman adjourned the trial till September 15 during a hearing held behind closed doors at Adiala Jail in Rawalpindi after prosecutors told him that four prosecution witnesses were currently out of the country.

Four officials of the Federal Investigation Agency were scheduled to record their testimony during Saturdya’s proceedings.

The prosecutors told the judge that the officials were currently abroad for some official work, sources said.
