Re: 26/11 trial: Ajmal Kasab pleads guilty in court

Now Kasab says he admitted guilt on his own volition.

Quote:
'I didn't confess under pressure, hang me if you want to'

ANI Posted online: Wednesday, Jul 22, 2009 at 1730 hrs

Mumbai : Lone surviving 26/11 terrorist Mohammad Ajmal Kasab told a special court that his decision to admit his guilt was not to seek mercy or escape death penalty.

Kasab told special judge M L Tahilyani that he had not made the confession seeking any mercy or to escape death penalty.

"Agar kisiko aitraaz hai...agar kisi ke dil mein shak hai ki main phansi se bachne ke liye yeh kar raha hoon toh beshak phansi ki saza dijiye. (If anyone feels that I am confessing to escape the death penalty then the court may without doubt hang me)," Kasab said.

The prosecution had earlier sought the court to verify whether Kasab was aware of the consequences of his confession. Judge Tahilyani said the court had taken all precautions to ensure that the confession made was voluntary and without external influence.

The court also noticed that on July 20 Kasab had said, "Maine duniya mein yeh kiya hai toh saza bhi duniyawalon se hi milni chahiya. Khuda se nahi. (I have done this in the world so I should be punished by people and not God)."

Defence lawyer Abbas Kazmi alleged that Kasab was mentally tortured in the jail due to which he confessed. The Pakistani gunman, however, disagreed with his counsel on torture charge and said, "Aisa koi masla nahi hai. (There is no such issue)."

Re: 26/11 trial: Ajmal Kasab pleads guilty in court

Even if Kasab truly confesses to everything, this trial won't get over early. Mainly because Ujjwal Nikam (the prosecutor) doesn't want it to get over soon. Nikam will milk it for all the publicity he can get for as long as he can get. Even if the judge accepts Kasab's statements as confession and a guilty plea, there will not be an early end to this trial.

BTW, Kasab is playing it very smart. I heard him being described as "Machiavellian" on Times Now TV.

You may be right but it looks like there is another hidden motive behind the confession.

Prosecution sees larger motive in Kasab's confession

Agencies Posted online: Wednesday, Jul 22, 2009 at 1514 hrs

Mumbai : Prosecution in the 26/11 terror attack case on Wednesday refused to accept completely the lone surviving terrorist Mohammad Ajmal Kasab's confession of his role and said he was not telling the whole truth.
Special Public Prosecutor Ujjwal Nikam submitted before the trial court the Kasab has not made full disclosure in his confession and thus the prosecution should be allowed to submit evidence against him and the other accused in the case.

"Kasab is not telling the whole truth. He has cleverly minimised his role and has done it to get lesser punishment or save his handlers in Pakistan," Nikam argued.

Nikam said there was a provision in Pakistan Criminal Procedure Code (CrPC) that allows for evidence gathered outside their country to be submitted in a court there.

"Kasab is very smart and intelligent to say that he be given the death penalty because no court will send him to the gallows if major role of his participation in the crime is discarded," Nikam said.

Through his confession, Kasab is trying to claim he played a subordinate role to slain terrorist Abu Ismail, he said.

"We can accept his confession only to two incidents - (Mumbai) CST firing and the theft of Skoda vehicle," the Public Prosecutor said.

"Kasab has not accepted his role in all the other incidents like the firing in Cama Hospital, the attack on a police jeep outside Cama Hospital and the encounter with police at Girgaum Chowpatty," Nikam said.

He further argued that several witnesses have identified Kasab as the one who was firing at Cama Hospital and at the police jeep thus killing ATS chief Hemant Karkare, Additional Commissioner of Police Ashok Kamte and encounter specialist Vijay Salaskar.

Nikam also told the court that there were several contradictions in the confession and the statement given by Kasab before a magistrate on February 18.

In the confession before the Magistrate, Kasab said that after robbing the Skoda vehicle, Ismail told him that they were going to Malabar Hill in South Mumbai.

"However, while admitting his guilt before the special court, Kasab has said that Ismail was lost and did not know where they were supposed to go," Nikam said.

He also said that before the Magistrate Kasab had revealed that the two other arrested accused - Fahim Ansari and Sabauddin Ahmed - had prepared maps of Mumbai and had handed them over to Pakistani handlers.

However, before the special court Kasab has not once taken the names of Ansari or Ahmed, the prosecutor said.

Updates... now he changes his mind..

26/11 trial: Kasab changes mind on pleading guilty
PTI 7 August 2009, 06:39pm IST
MUMBAI: Hours after informing a court that he wanted to plead guilty to all the charges framed against him in connection with the 26/11 blasts, prime accused Ajmal Kasab changed his mind and said he did not want to say anything.

When asked by special judge M L Tahailiyani why he said he wanted to plead guilty in the morning session of the court, Kasab replied, "Yun hi (Just like that)."

The court then asked if he was being influenced by someone to admit his guilt, but the Pakistani gunman said he was not.

When the judge asked him whether he wanted the trial to go on, 22-year-old Kasab replied: "Ji haan, aapki marzi se (Yes sir, with your permission)."

As judge Tahaliyani expressed surprise over Kasab's behaviour, defence counsel Abbas Kazmi said it was due to the auspicious day of 'Shab-e-baraat (night of blessings)' which Muslims observed on Thursday night. On this day people believe that if you confess, you are forgiven by god, Kazmi told the court.

Later, Kazmi told reporters that Kasab was frustrated and was under the impression that a verdict will be given if he pleads guilty to all charges.

"I have explained to him that despite his pleading guilty to all charges the trial will go on because there are two other accused in the dock," Kazmi said.

In the morning when a witness was being examined, Kasab stood up in the dock and told Tahaliyani that he wanted to plead guilty.

However, the court felt that Kasab was being very vague about his admission of guilt and was asked to talk with his lawyer before doing so.

Outside the court, special public prosecutor Ujjwal Nikam said Kasab was a great actor and had not only obtained military training from conspirators in Pakistan, but had also received training on how to mislead others.

"The moment we informed the court that FBI officials will be examined as witnesses, Kasab got up to say he wanted to plead guilty to all charges," he said.

This was done by Kasab to save his masters in Pakistan and it showed that the gunman did not want the prosecution to table evidence which FBI has collected in this case, Nikam claimed.

"Kasab's act will not affect the case and we shall conclude the trial within a month," he said.

Kasab had admitted his guilt before the court last month, but the court had decided to take the admission of guilt on record and continue with the trial.

The Pakistani gunman was reprimanded by the court on Thursday after he refused to accept food served by jail authorities and threw utensils given to him allegedly demanding he be served 'mutton biryani'.
