Kasab told residents of his village in Pakistan’s Punjab province during his last visit there that he was going away for jihad. He visited Faridkot about five months ago and asked his mother to bless him before he left, residents were quoted as saying in a report aired by Geo News channel on Saturday.

“He came to the village about five or six months ago. He told his mother he was going away for jihad. He asked her to bless him and to leave his fate in the hands of Allah,” said an unnamed resident of Faridkot in what the channel described as secretly filmed footage.

The channel said most people of Faridkot and nearby Depalpur sub-district were reluctant to talk about Kasab on record but some discussed him in the secretly filmed footage.
