Kasab’s admission is not confession: Defence
New Delhi: 26/11 accused Ajmal Kasab’s lawyer Abbas Kazmi told the media on Tuesday that his client had merely answered the questions of the judge and that his statements must not be misconstrued as his confession to the crime.
While answering reporters’ queries, Kazmi said that the judge would have three options before him tomorrow when the case would be heard again. Either the final verdict will be pronounced, or the plea could either be accepted or rejected.
Coming to his client’s defence in public, the counsel remarked that Kasab was dragged by the cops on the fateful day and in the process it was possible that he accidentally may have pulled the trigger of the gun thus killing ATS Chief Hemant Karkare. He called the incident as possibly circumstantial.
As per Abbas Kazmi, Ajmal Kasab has alleged that the Mumbai terror attack case had Indian links as well. He had named Abu Jundal from India who was involved in the conspiracy right from the time it was plotted in Karachi. For the probe to be complete, he said it was necessary for the “Indian link” to be investigated thoroughly.
