An anti-terror court in Pakistan, hearing the trial of seven suspects in last year’s Mumbai terror attacks, has declared 14 other accused in the case, including Amir Ajmal Kasab, as ‘absconders’ and deferred the hearing till November 7.

According to reports, judge Malik Muhammda Akram Awam announced 14 other suspects connected with the attacks including Kasab, the lone surviving terrorist captured alive by Indian security forces during the strikes, as ‘absconders’.

Details of 13 other suspects were not available immediately.

Khwaja Sultan, the lawyer representing LeT operations commander Zakiur Rehman Lakhvi – one of the seven suspects arrested by Pakistani authorities, was quoted as saying by PTI that Judge Awan adjourned the case till next Saturday.

Today’s proceedings were dominated by reservations expressed by the accused over the manner in which they were indicted during a hearing held on October 10.
