An officer of the crime branch, who was part of the investigating team in the 26/11 terror attack case, has gifted a kurta-pyjama to Pakistani terrorist Mohammed Ajmal Kasab, the trial court was informed on Friday.
Kasab came to the trial court wearing white kurta and pyjama which prompted the Judge to ask him who had given him the dress.
The judge posed this question because it did not appear to be of Kasab’s size.
Kasab blushed but did not give any answer.
However, when the judge repeated his query, police officers escorting him said, “Sir, Kadam has given Kasab this dress”.
They were referring to Dinesh Kadam, API, unit three, Crime Branch.
Usually, Kasab comes to the court dressed in T-shirt and trousers but sometimes he also wears kurta-pyjama.
Two other accused, Fahim Ansari and Sabauddin Ahmed, who are facing 26/11 terror trial along with Kasab, wear T-shirts and trousers or kurta-pyjama.
