Pastor identifies Kasab as one of the attackers

A pastor on Monday identified Mohammad Ajmal Amir Kasab — the lone terrorist arrested in connection with last year’s Mumbai attack — as one of the two attackers who stormed Cama Hospital on November 26.

The pastor, Jignesh Chinnekar (29), also identified the bag Kasab was carrying on that day. He told the court that Kasab had snatched two mobile phones from him and one more from his brother-in-law, Thomas Uledar. The mobiles were later recovered from Kasab’s rucksack after his arrest.

Chinnekar and his relatives were inside the Ante-Natal Care ward on the fifth floor when Kasab and his partner Abu Ismail stormed the hospital. He also described how Ismail stabbed and shot a person.

The special court also recorded the evidence of Associate Professor of Grand Medical College, Dr Bhalchandra Chikhalkar, who had conducted autopsies on 21 bodies, including that of slain Anti-Terrorism Squad chief Hemant Karkare and Additional Commissioner of Police (ACP) Ashok Kamte..

Sub-Inspector Ramchandra Pawar and Venkatesh Sawla, a panch witness, testified regarding seizure of clothes and other belongings of ACP Sadanand Date, who had been injured in an encounter at the hospital.
