MUMBAI (Agencies) - Gunman Ajmal Kasab on Monday told an Indian special court trying the 26/11 attacks case that all the four assailants who stormed Taj hotel were Indians. Kasab, whose statement is being recorded by the court on evidences adduced by the prosecution, told Special Judge M L Tahaliyani that while one of the attackers of the Taj hotel siege was a Kashmiri, another was from Indian Gujarat. The third assailant at Taj was Abu Ismail from Mumbai, Kasab claimed. According to prosecution, Ismail was gunned down at Girgaum Chowpatty by the police in an encounter when he along with Kasab was trying to escape. He, however, did not elaborate on the identity of the fourth attacker at the Taj. Kasabs claim came when Judge Tahaliyani wanted to know if he had anything to say about the slain gunmen who had been identified by eyewitnesses. When the Judge asked how he knew that Abu Ismail was from Mumbai, Kasab said, I can make out from his face. To this Tahaliyani asked in a light-hearted manner, Did he look like a Marathi manoos? Later, speaking to reporters, Special Public Prosecutor Ujjwal Nikam described Kasabs claim as absurd and concocted. Kasabs claim is absurd and concocted. He has been taking frequent U-turns and this is one of those. This will in no way weaken the prosecutions case against him, Nikam said.
