Pakistani gunman Ajmal Kasab has complained to the special court that jail authorities are giving him food laced with drugs as a result of which he feels “giddy”.

The lone surviving 26/11 terrorist, however, was reprimanded by Judge ML Tahaliyani who asked him not to make such baseless allegations repeatedly.

Kasab had made this grievance a few days back also after media left the court after proceedings got over.

Kasab’s lawyer KP Pawar confirmed that the accused had made this complaint but the court rejected his charge.

Earlier also, Kasab had alleged that the authorities were giving him food laced with drugs following which the judge sent a sample of food served to him to a forensic laboratory for tests which negated his claims.

Kasab also complained that the jail guards asked him to sing to pass their time, but claimed he did not oblige.

The accused also alleged that the guards inquired from him whether he had a girlfriend to which he replied that he studied in a boys school.
