ISLAMABAD: An anti-terrorism court (ATC) ordered on Friday that a judicial commission travel to Karachi next week on October 6 (Thursday) to examine a boat which was allegedly used in the Mumbai attacks.

During its visit, the commission will also record the testimony of a witness who saw the boat being seized at the Karachi shipyard. The boat, “Al-Fouz”, was purportedly used by the Mumbai attackers to sail from Pakistani shores into open waters.

The commission, comprising the ATC judge, officials of the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA), defence counsel Raja Rizwan Abbasi and court officials will travel to Karachi and examine the boat. The statement of a witness would be recorded while it is expected that he may be cross-examined as well.
