The only surviving suspect of Mumbai Terror attack Amir Ajmal Kasab has pleaded not guilty to all the charges against him, including waging war against India and murder.
“It’s all wrong. I’m not guilty,” Kasab told the Special Court located at Arthur Jail Road. However, he accepted that he is twenty one.
He denied all 86 charges which were formally levelled against him in the Special Court which is hearing evidences of the 26/11 terror strike in the financial capital of the country.
Judge ML Tahiliyani read out all the charges against Kasab in the court, including that he is a Pakistani.
Two Indians, Fahim Ansari and Sabauddin Ahmed, are also on trial accused of being members of the Lashkar-e-Taiba militant group and of scouting for the attacks.
They too pleaded not guilty to conspiracy to commit the same offences as Qasab.
Prosecutors say that Kasab was one of 10 attackers responsible for killing 166 people and wounding 234 more during the three-day siege of India’s financial capital. Nine other suspects were killed during the attacks.
Kasab will face the death penalty if convicted.
