Bombay HC issues arrest warrant against Fahim Ansari, Sabauddin

August 12, 2010 15:39 IST

The Bombay high court has issued an arrest warrant against Fahim Ansari and Sabauddin Ahmed after admitting the Maharashtra government's appeal against the lower court verdict acquitting the two in the 26/11 terror attack case.

On May 3, 2010, Ansari and Ahmed were acquitted of all charges as Special Anti-terror Court Judge M L Tahaliyani said the evidence produced by the prosecution could not be relied upon.

Ahmed and Ansari allegedly prepared the maps of the terror targets and handed those over to Pakistan-based Lashkar-e-Tayiba to carry out the terror strike.

The Maharashtra government had filed an appeal against the special court's verdict in the Bombay high court.
