MUMBAI (AFP) - Mohammed Ajmal Amir Kasab, who is on trial in India over the 2008 Mumbai attacks, was branded a conniving, depraved murderer by the prosecution during final arguments on Tuesday. Lawyer Ujjwal Nikam said the case against Kasab was overwhelming, as was voluminous evidence of Pakistani involvement. Kasab stands accused of being one of 10 militants who launched an assault against multiple targets in Indias financial capital 14 months ago. The sole surviving gunman, he faces a string of charges, including waging war against India, murder and attempted murder. If convicted, he could face the death penalty. A total of 166 people were killed and more than 300 injured in the attacks, which India blamed on the banned Pakistan-based organisation Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT). Nikam told a special prison court in the city that the 21-year-old had deliberately tried to avoid responsibility by first denying his role in the attacks, before pleading guilty then saying he was pressured into an admission. This lying, conniving, depraved murderer has the moral turpitude to play with the honourable court and try to make a mockery of the Indian judicial system, the lawyer said. He has done this deliberately to try to mislead the court, he added. He did it because its part of his training... but we have produced and adduced such a volume of evidence that all his attempts have been foiled. Nikam told the court, which included the chief minister of Maharashtra state, Ashok Chavan, that evidence of Pakistani involvement was voluminous. A Pakistani army major-general helped equip and train the attackers at LeT camps, while individuals in the military had accessed email and Internet telephone accounts used by the militants, the lawyer alleged. The gunmen and their handlers had been keen to conceal their true nationality, the court heard. Its very evident that the terror attack... was carried out under the supervision and control of personnel connected with the security apparatus of Pakistan, Nikam said. Theres ample evidence on the record to show that the attack was hatched in Pakistan by people who didnt want the name of Pakistan to come to the surface.
