Kasab is a fidayeen, well trained to misguide: Ujwal Nikam
Observing the behaviour of Pakistani gunman Mohammed Ajmal Amir Kasab and his statements in court proves that he is a 'fidayeen', who has been well trained physically and psychologically to even dodge clutches of law, said Ujwal Nikam, public prosecutor of the 26/11 case.
Nikam, talking to PTI during an interactive session on Saturday said, Kasab has not only being trained in terror warfare but also given intelligence training to escape the clutches of law by "dishonest" means.
"From what he has told the court, it is clear that he is "misguiding". He has been misleading from time to time in regard to his age so that he can go in for a trial under Juvenile Justice Act, which does not attract rigorous punishment like the one prescribed under IPC," Nikam said.
"He is unpredictable and says one thing at one moment and totally opposite at some other time. Kasab gave his age as 21 years to the jailor and the doctor who examined him after his arrest but in the court he pleaded he was 17.
After the court inquiry found he was not a minor, Kasab again blurted out that he was 21 when charges were being framed against him in the court.
"This shows the pattern how well he has been trained to mislead. He is definitely a 'Fidayeen' and knows how to influence people by harping on their psychology. Even his mood patterns indicate this trend, Nikam added.
