Mumbai, June 21(ANI): As the addresses of the 35 absconding accused in the 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks case has been obtained from the Centre, the prosecution is now all set to move to a special court for issue of non-bailable warrants (NBWs) against all the accused.

“The addresses of absconding accused have been provided to the investigating agency by the Government of India. They are expected to be filed in the court tomorrow, paving the way for issue of non-bailable warrants,” an official said.

Hafeez Muhammed Saeed, chief of Jama’at-ud-Da’wah, is one of the 35 absconders, who was recently discharged on technical grounds by a Pakistan court in connection with the Mumbai terror attacks case.

Saeed is wanted in India, as the arrested terrorist of the 26/11, Ajmal Amir Kasab, has implicated him in his confession that Saeed was an alleged mastermind.

Earlier, the court had refused to issue warrants because of incomplete names and addresses of the accused. It had asked the prosecution to provide complete addresses.

“We have complete addresses of prime absconding accused and shall provide them to the court for issue of NBWs,” said special public prosecutor Ujjwal Nikam. (ANI)
