Pakistani gunman Ajmal Kasab on Thursday claimed police had fabricated evidence by feeding data in the Global Positioning System (GPS), which showed that the 26/11 terrorists came from Karachi to Mumbai by the sea route.

"I have no knowledge that police had retrieved data from GPS with the help of foreign experts which showed a sea route from Karachi to Mumbai... Police may have fed the data," Kasab told judge M L Tahaliyani.

The case of the prosecution is that 10 terrorists, including Kasab, had come from Karachi to Mumbai using GPS to unleash terror at different places in the country's financial capital on November 26, 2008.

Kasab said he was not aware that some terrorists had spoken to news channels and that their interviews had been telecast when the attacks were in progress.

The lone surviving terrorist of the 26/11 siege also denied knowledge that CCTVs cameras in hotel Taj and Oberoi had recorded the movement of terrorists in the premises. He also refused to acknowledge the footage of the operation shown in the court.

To a question, Kasab said he had no idea that a Yamaha engine had been imported by a Pakistani firm from Japan on January 20, 2008, 10 months before the terror strikes.

The prosecution has alleged that terrorists had fitted the engine to a dinghy, which they used to reach the shores of Mumbai after leaving fishing trawler Kuber in the sea.
