Kasab verdict an important milestone: Crime Branch
Mumbai: The Mumbai Crime Branch, which probed the 26/11 terror attack case, on Wednesday termed as an "important milestone" the Supreme Court verdict upholding death sentence of Pakistani gunman Ajmal Kasab.
"The Supreme Court`s judgement is an important milestone in the fight against terrorism," Joint Commissioner of Police (Crime) Himanshu Roy told reporters.
On the role of Pakistan, the crime branch chief said, "Abu Jundal`s interrogation further reveals role of Pakistan in exporting terror to our country and his links with LeT".
Jundal, suspected to be one of the key 26/11 handlers, was deported to India by Saudi Arabia and is currently in police custody in connection with the 2006 Aurangabad arms haul case.
"Crime Branch is collecting very strong evidence against Jundal," Roy said.
"Those martyrs who laid down their lives to nab Kasab should be given a tribute today," he said.
"Without them (martyrs) nabbing Kasab, his conviction would not have been possible," Roy said.
