LAHORE - The Lahore High Court Friday refused to transfer trail of Zakiur Rehman Lakhvi, an accused of Mumbai terrorist attacks, from Rawalpindi anti-terrorism court to Lahore. Chief Justice Khawaja Muhammad Sharif, however, directed Punjab government to provide foolproof security to Lakhvis counsels. Khawaja Sultan, a senior advocate, who is representing Lakhvi in the trail, has submitted a transfer application on the plea of security concerns. He had contended that his life was under danger as personnel of Indian secrete agencies were roaming around the capital city. He said he had to travel a long way to reach ATC court and there was every likelihood that they might target him for pursuing Lakhvis case. He said ATC court was not working independently as the government was influencing it while the government was already under influence of India. He said the incumbent judge had not applied him mind while framing charges as he farmed the same charges what had done his predecessor. He said Lahore was a safe place as compare to Islamabad because less number of Indian spies was present here. He said this showed that court was under the pressure of government. Additional advocate general and additional prosecutor general said the government was ready to provide security to the counsels. ATC Rawalpindi is holding in-camera proceeding of the case inside Adiala Jail. Special Investigation Cell (SIC) had registered a case against eight suspects, including Hamad Ameen Sadiq, Zarar Shah, Hamza alias Abu Alqa, Mr Khan, Shahid Jamil Riaz alias Muhammad Riaz, Javed Iqbal, Zakiur Rehman Lakhvi and Muhammad Ashfaq for February 12 for their alleged involvement in the Mumbai attacks. The SIC had arrested the accused Zakiur Rehman Lakhvi, Zarar Shah, Hamza alias Abu Alqa and Hamad Ameen Sadiq from Soan Terminal on February 12, 2009. Police also arrested accused Shahid Jamil Riaz alias Muhammad Riaz from Chakwal city in March.
