Mumbai Terror Attacks Prime Accused Confesses Crime

In what could be called a very surprising turn of events in Mumbai terror attack case, the main accused Amir Ajmail Kasab has pleaded guilty of his charges in special court at Arthur Road Jail.

For the first time in the trial so far, Kasab told the court entire plot behind last November’s terror attacks. He confessed that along with nine other accomplices, he came in a vessel from Karachi.

“Sir, mujhe mera gunah kabul hai (I plead guilty to my crime),” Kasab told the special court.

While speaking to a TV news channel, Special Public Prosecutor Ujjwal Nikam said that Kasab’s admission was unexpected.

“Kasab has admitted to all the charges against him. It is a great victory for all of us,” Nikam said.

It may mentioned that on Sunday, Pakistan had accepted that in addition to Kasab, two more of the ten terrorists who struck on Mumbai in November 26 last year –  Imran Babar and Abdur – were Pakistani nationals.

The acknowledgment is part of the 26/11 dossier Pakistan handed over to India last week, which says that determination about the nationality of Babar and Abdur Rahman has been made on the basis of DNA samples.

This marks the first time when Pakistan has accepted that the attackers of Mumbai, Kasab included, were its citizens.

In fact, authorities in Pakistan had started by contesting Kasab’s disclosure about his being a citizen of village Farid Kot of Okara district. Though investigation by a TV channel and, later, statement of Kasab’s kin forced them to accept the fact, it is the first time that the acknowledgement has been made in a document handed over to India.
