A police officer, who had taken down personal details of the prime accused Mohammed Ajmal Amir Kasab, on Wednesday identified him in a Special Court and said the injured Kasab was taken to Nair hospital after the shootout at Girgaum Chowpatty on November 26 last year.
Assistant Police Inspector (API) Pandurang Gavade said that he had taken terrorist Abu Ismail to Nair hospital where he was declared brought dead. Another terrorist, who shot at police officials at Girgaum Chowpatty, was also taken to the hospital for treatment and he (Gavade) had asked his name and address.
"The injured person told me that he was from Faridkot in Pakistan and his name was Mohammed Ajmal Amir Kasab. He also gave his age as 21," the witness told special public prosecutor Ujjwal Nikam.
I passed these details to D B Marg police station over telephone, the witness said.
Gavade is the fourth witness in the Mumbai terror attack case who has identified Kasab. He is the fifth one to depose in the case.
Another witness, Sanjay Jadhav, who had drawn a 'panchanama', was also examined to prove that API Sanjay Govilkar was injured in the shootout by the terrorists at Chowpatty.
