Mumbai: Lone surviving Pakistani gunman
Ajmal Kasab continued to be in denial mode in the 26/11 trial
court on Tuesday, saying he was not aware about terror attacks at
Hotel Taj Mahal, Leopold Cafe and Nariman House.
Attired in a white kurta and pyjama, Kasab told Judge M L
Tahaliyani that he had no idea about the report of a chemical
analyst according to which traces of RDX were found from DNA
samples of two terrorists, killed by security forces at Hotel
Taj Mahal on November 26, 2008.
He was replying to questions put to him by the court on
evidence adduced by the prosecution against him.
Maintaining that he had no association with the 26/11
terrorists, Kasab said he was not aware that bullets recovered
from bodies of deceased victims at Hotel Taj Mahal and nearby
Leopold Cafe had matched with AK-47 rifles used by assailants.
Asked if he was aware that four AK-47 rifles recovered
from Hotel Taj Mahal were sent to laboratory for forensic
tests, Kasab said, "Pata nahin (I do not know)."
"I am not aware," Kasab said to another question about a
forensic laboratory report confirming that AK-47 rifles which
were recovered from Hotel Taj Mahal were in working condition
and had been used by terrorists to shoot at people.
The prosecution`s case is that four of the 10 terrorists
had stormed Hotel Taj and Leopold Cafe, killing many persons.
Kasab was allegedly involved in terror attacks at other places
such as Chhatrapati Shivaji terminus and Cama Hospital.
