A special court on Monday permitted the prosecution to send copies of Ajmal Amir Kasab’s — prime accused in Mumbai terror strikes case — confession and other related documents to the Pakistan government.
Judge M.L. Tahaliyani allowed the prosecution to make copies of Kasab’s confession, record of recovery of satellite phones and communication reports of telephonic talks between the perpetrators of 26/11 attack and the conspirators. Special Public Prosecutor Ujjwal Nikam said some persons have been arrested in Pakistan for their alleged complicity in the case. The Pakistan government is prosecuting against them and so they want certain documents from India, which can be used as evidence against them.
Judge Tahaliyani also said that the court would frame charges against Kasab and two others on Wednesday and would give them an opportunity to plead guilty or not guilty to the charges. The prosecution also urged the court to issue non-bailable warrants against 35 absconding accused, including Zaki-ur-Rehman Lakhvi, alleged mastermind and the chief of operations of Lashkar-e-Tayyeba.
