Pak judge in Mumbai case wants to quit

 
Judge Baqir Ali Rana of the anti-terrorism court, who has been conducting the trial within the high-security Adiala Jail in Rawalpindi, has asked the Lahore High Court to be excused from hearing the case. The plea is pending before court for its final decision.

However, sources said Rana took the step as he felt he was under pressure from the government and other quarters with regard to the trial of the seven suspects, including key Lashker-e-Toiba operatives Zakiur Rehman Lakhvi and Zarar Shah.
