Pakistan will ignore the consular access plea of Ajmal Amir Kasab, the lone terrorist arrested during the Mumbai terror strikes, the Prime Minister's Adviser on Interior Affairs Rehman Malik has said.

"There is no question of consular access unless it is proved that Ajmal Kasab is a Pakistan national," he told reporters on the sidelines of a function on Wednesday at the National Database and Registration Authority (Nadra) headquarters.

"We have thoroughly checked the registration record but have not found Ajmal Kasab's name in the Nadra database.

"Therefore we are not sure whether he is a Pakistani. How we can give him consular access without having knowledge about his nationality?" Dawn on Thursday quoted Malik as saying.
