  • An anti-terrorism court on Thursday issued notices to seven accused in the 2008 Mumbai terror attacks case, which has been underway for six years now. Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) commander Zakiur Rehman Lakhvi, one of the seven accused, has also been issued a notice.
  • The court also sent a notice to the government to examine the boat used by the accused to percolate the Indian coast. Apparently, the militants had left Karachi on the boat on 23 November 2008 and killed 166 people in the attack.
  • The next hearing is scheduled for 22 September.
