Mumbai: A special court today issued non-bailable warrants against 22 Pakistani nationals, including chief of Jamaat-ud-Dawa Hafeez Mohammed Sayeed and operational chief of Lashkar-e-Toiba Zaki-ur-Rehman Lakhvi, in 26/11 terror attack case after the prosecution said they had trained captured gunman Mohammed Kasab and nine others.

Judge M L Tahaliyani issued the warrants asking the Mumbai Police Commissioner and the CBI Director to execute them through the Interpol and produce the absconders before the court soon.

The warrants would be sent to the Interpol which will issue red corner notices to member-countries and flash them all over to trace the absconders,  public prosecutor Ujjwal Nikam said.

"Pakistan is also member of Interpol and hence Pakistani police is under a legal obligation to execute the warrants.The central intelligence agency of each country is member of the Interpol", he said.

Prosecutor Nikam placed evidence to show that the absconders had trained Kasab and nine others in Pakistan to unleash terror in Mumbai. They had also taken part in the conspiracy hatched by LeT and gave logistics support to terrorists.
