`Kasab following al-Qaeda manual`
Mumbai: Lone surviving 26/11 gunman Ajmal Kasab has been following the "al-Qaeda manual" by changing his stand quite often but it would not affect the Mumbai attack case, special public prosecutor Ujjwal Nikam said Wednesday.
The "al-Qaeda manual" says that a person trained in terror activities should attempt to derail investigation and court proceedings by changing his stand frequently, Nikam said
outside the court where the trial of the Pakistani terrorist is expected to conclude.
"This is exactly what Kasab has been doing," Nikam told reporters.
Earlier, Kasab had confessed before a magistrate, saying that Lashkar-e-Toiba (LeT) had carried out the Mumbai terror attack and he and nine others had come from Pakistan to commit the dastardly strikes.
Four months later he retracted his confession in the trial court.
Again, during the trial, Kasab had said that he wanted to make a guilty plea. In this statement, he partly accepted guilt and partly denied his involvement, saying he had not fired at people but was only following his leader Abu Ismail, who was shot dead by police.
