I don't want to say anything, said Kasab
"Mujhe kuch nahi kahna hai" (I don't want to say anything), was Pakistani terrorist Ajmal Amir Kasab's reaction just after he was sentenced to death for the Mumbai terror attack.
Kasab made the observation to defence lawyer KP Pawar when the latter asked him if he wanted to say anything in response to the sentence handed down by judge ML Tahaliyani.
"The court asked us, does the convict have anything to say? You can discuss and tell us," Pawar told reporters later, giving an account of the final moments of one of India's most high profile trials.
"I spoke to him. I asked him: do you want to say something? Kasab said: 'I don't want to say anything.' This I told the court."
Pawar was asked if the Pakistani proposed to challenge the death penalty. "I will get a chance (to again talk to him). These things will be decided (then)."
