Senior lawyer Ujjwal Nikam, who appeared as special public prosecutor in the 26/11 Mumbai terror attack case, blamed the Pakistan government for delay in the trial against masterminds of the attack. On the eve of 10th anniversary of the terror attack, he accused Islamabad of providing patronage to those accused in the case.
On 26th of November, 2008, 10 Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) terrorists had sailed into Mumbai from Karachi and carried out coordinated attacks, killing 166 people and injuring over 300. Nine of the attackers were killed by police while lone survivor Ajmal Kasab was captured and hanged after he was awarded death sentence by a court.
Dubbing LeT founder Hafiz Saeed and Zakiur Rehman Lakhvi as the real terrorists behind the attack in Mumbai in 2008, Nikam said the authorities in Pakistan should make efforts for cancellation of the bail granted to them.
