In yet another interesting move, lone captured terrorist Ajmal Amir Kasab backtracked from his earlier statement that he wanted to confess all the charges leveled against him in the 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks.
When judge Tahiliyani asked him why he was saying so, Kasab said, â€˜I donâ€™t want to say anything in this regard or confess anything. You can continue with the trial.â€™ He said â€˜Jo bhi baat hai wo saamne aa jayegi. Aap trial jari rakhiye (Whatever truth is there, it will come out one day. You continue with the trial).â€™ Kasab, who before the lunch session had told Special court judge M L Tahiliyani that he wanted to confess to his crime, took everybody by surprise after he said that he did not want to confess anymore now.
Judge Tahiliyani had asked him to discuss with his lawyer Abbas Kazmi before taking any decision.
He told the gunman that in his earlier confession he had not pleaded guilty to several charges following which the trial was on.
Meanwhile, Kazmi told media persons after the trial that Kasab did not want to confess anymore as he might be fearing an early judgment.
On July 20, Kasab, in a dramatic twist, had confessed to his involvement in the attacks in the special court.
He had also mentioned that he had not done so under any pressure and that pleaded the court to hang him.
Despite the confession, the trial proceedings were on as Kasab had mentioned in his confessional statement that he had fired at CST, Cama Hospital and Girgaum chowpatty, but he did not know whether anybody was killed by bullets from his rifle.
