MUMBAI (Agencies) - The lone militant suspect captured by police during the Mumbai attacks told an Indian court Monday he was from Pakistan and would accept a court-appointed lawyer to defend him. Mohammed Ajmal Amir Iman, also known as Kasab, appeared before special judge ML Tahiliyani via video link from the Mumbai jail where he is being housed in a high-security cell. He broke into laughter when he was asked by a court whether he understood the charges against him.Dressed in a grey T-shirt, the bearded Kasab, asked by the court if he wanted a lawyer for the trial, replied, "If there will be a trial then I will need a lawyer." Iman, who faces charges including murder, attempted murder and "waging war against India" over the attacks that killed 165 people, told the court he was a resident of Faridkot in the Punjab area of Pakistan. The 21-year-old Kasab was the only alleged member of the 10-man hardline commando-type unit captured alive during the November 26-29 siege. Kasab, who is reported to have received anonymous death threats, was not produced in court for security reasons. After being told the judge who was conducting the hearing would preside over the trial, Iman smiled and replied with the traditional Indian Hindu greeting "Namaste." The prosecution has asked the court to postpone the trial to April 13 in order to ready a special high security court in Arthur Road jail. The charges filed against Kasab were also filed against two alleged accomplices, Fahim Ansari and Sabauddin Ahmed, both Indian nationals, who police believe gave logistical support to the attackers. The charge sheet against the three men totals a massive 11,280 pages. The special sessions court extended the judicial custody of Kasab till March 30.
