The special 26/11 trial court today resumed recording the final statement of Pakistani gunman Ajmal Kasab, who continued denying the evidence adduced against him by the prosecution.

To every question put forth by Judge M L Tahaliyani, Kasab, clad in white kurta pyjama, kept replying, "Pata Nahi..Yeh Galat hai..(I don't know..It is false)."

Kasab denied having fired at anyone and said he was not present at CST or Cama hospital as he was already in police custody on November 26, 2008.

Asked about CCTV footages of him and slain terrorist Abu Ismail firing at CST, Kasab said, "I do not know any Abu..The only Abu I know is my father, whom I call Abu."

When confronted with evidence given by ballistic experts which testified that few of the empty cartridges recovered from CST and Cama hospital were fired from his (Kasab) AK-47 rifle, the Pakistani national said, "Since those experts are also government officials, they are also lying."

The court also informed Kasab that his DNA had matched with the DNA sample taken from a jacket on Kuber boat, to which Kasab said the jacket was seized from him on November 24 when he was arrested from suburban Juhu Chowpatty.
