Mumbai: Almost 18 months after India’s worst terror attack, Pakistani Mohammed Ajmal Amir Kasab was Monday declared guilty on 83 of 86 charges against him, including murder and waging war against the Indian state in the November 2008 Mumbai attack. Special Judge M.L. Tahilyani, however, acquitted the two other accused, Indians Fahim Ansari and Sabauddin Ahmed.
Kasab faced the charge of killing 166 persons by indiscriminately firing and hurling hand grenades at various places on November 26, 2008.
Faheem Ansari and Sabauddin Ahmed, both Indians, were charged with drawing maps of targets and passing them on to Lashkar-e-Taiba to execute the diabolic terror attacks.
Among the places targeted by the terrorists were Chhatrapati Shivaji Railway Terminus, Nariman House, Cama Hospital, Hotel Taj Mahal, Hotel Oberoi-Trident and Metro junction. At some of these places, terrorists held siege for close to 60 hours before being killed by security forces in a pitched battle.
While Kasab was caught alive at Girgaum Chowpatty when he was trying to escape in a car, nine other gunmen were shot dead by police and security forces.
The three accused have been tried under the provisions of various acts including IPC, Bombay Police Act, Passport Act, Customs Act, Foreigners Act, Damage to Public Property Act, Railways Act, and Unlawful Activities Prevention Act.
Before the verdict was announced, defence lawyer, K.P. Pawar said, “We have done our best to convince the court that Kasab is innocent and falsely implicated in the 26/11 terror attack case. Now it is for the court to decide.”
