Naji told the court that the accused were allegedly involved in transferring the funds from Pakistan to the US.

Chief prosecutor Chaudhry Zulifqar Ali told PTI after the hearing held behind closed doors at Adiala Jail in Rawalpindi that Naji recorded his testimony and defence lawyers Khwaja Haris Ahmed and Malik Rafique cross examined him for four hours.

Ali said Naji had informed the court about how the accused transferred USD 250 from Pakistan to the US account and how the VoIP connections were used by the Mumbai attackers and their handlers during November 27-28, 2008.

Naji also submitted records of the financial transaction in court, Ali said.
