Two persons suspected to be senior Pakistani army officers were named on Wednesday in the chargesheet filed by Mumbai police in connection with the 26/11 terror attacks.

"Two supposedly Pakistan Army names with designations have been named in the chargesheet," Joint Commissioner of Mumbai Police Rakesh Maria told media-persons.

Maria said one of the officers held the rank of Major-General. "Whether they are serving or part of the Lashkar-e- Taiba hierarchy is a part of investigation," he said.

Describing the attacks as 'fidayeen', Maria said the money trail pertaining to communication and purchase of SIM cards used by the attackers has been established and submitted in the chargesheet. He said things like renting of houses and others which were earlier not disclosed during the course of investigation are now part of the chargesheet which named 35 accused from Pakistan along with Amir Ajmal Kasab, the lone attacker captured alive, and the nine other slain terrorists.

"The identification parade of bodies of the terrorists killed during the attacks was also a part of the probe," Maria said.
