March 9th, 2009 - 1:04 pm ICT by ANI  

Mumbai, Mar. 9 (ANI): The Mumbai terror attack case could be transferred on Monday from Metropolitan Court to the Sessions Court. Ajmal Kasab, the lone terrorist captured in the attacks and two other accused, Fahim Ansari and Sabahuddin, will be tried in the case. Metropolitan court may determine if it can commit the high-profile case to a special Sessions Court, as it does not have the jurisdiction to try the case under the murder charges among others. The Sessions Court is to be set up inside the Arthur Road jail, where Kasab is expected to be tried. Earlier, Kasab was shifted to the high security Arthur Road jail from the Crime Branch lock up. Special bomb and chemical proof bunkers have been built in Arthur Road Jail for Kasab security. (ANI)
