The prosecution in the 26/11 terror attacks case argued on Thursday that the lone surviving Pakistani gunman Ajmal Amir Kasab was responsible for the brutal killings of innocent people at Taj hotel, Hotel Oberoi-Trident and Nariman House although he did not directly participate in the attacks at these places.

Special public prosecutor Ujjwal Nikam relied on circumstantial evidence apart from confessional statement given by the 21-year-old Pakistani and the intercepted telephonic conversations between the Lashkar-e-Tayyeba hitmen and their Pakistani handlers.

Taking his final arguments further the prosecutor submitted that parts of Kasab’s confession were corroborated by the intercepted telephonic talks, which proved beyond his role in the conspiracy.

The special court hearing the case on Thursday raised some queries about the role of Callphonex owner, who has deposed in the case as a prosecution witness.

With the assistance of US Federal Bureau of Investigation, his testimony was recorded through video-conferencing from Canada.
