Describing Ajmal Kasab's confession about his involvement in the 26/11 attacks as a "victory of truth", special public prosecutor Ujjwal Nikam today said no one had thought that the Pakistani gunmen would admit his guilt so soon.
"The confession came all of a sudden and no one ever thought that Kasab would admit his guilt. He had been trying different tactics since long to wriggle out of the case, for example he said that he was a juvenile," Nikam said.
According to him, the court will now examine Kasab's statement to see whether it was made under some kind of pressure or whether it was voluntary.
"I have always maintained that Kasab is a great actor and his decision to confess was made after discussing the issue with his lawyer Abbas Kazmi," Nikam said.
