The alQaeda manual says that a person trained in terror activities should attempt to derail investigation and court proceedings by changing his stand frequently, Mr. Nikam said outside the court where the trial of the terrorist is expected to conclude. This is exactly what Kasab has been doing, Mr. Nikam said. Earlier, Kasab had confessed before a magistrate, saying that LashkareToiba (LeT) had carried out the Mumbai terror attacks and he and nine others had come to commit the dastardly strikes. Four months later he retracted his confession in the trial court. Again, during the trial, Kasab said that he wanted to make a guilty plea. In this statement, he partly accepted guilt and partly denied his involvement, saying he had not fired at people but was only following his leader Abu Ismail, who was shot dead by police. In the guilty plea, Kasab had also denied killing Amarsinh Solanki, navigator of 'Kuber boat by which the terrorists had come from Pakistan. He also disowned his earlier statement on killing constable, Tukaram Omble, saying that it was given under police duress. Later, he told the court that even the guilty plea made by him was under police pressure. Finally, Kasab took a stand that he was not a terrorist and had come from Pakistan on a tourist visa, alleging that he was framed up in the case. I am happy that trial has come to an end. We have highlighted all aspects of conspiracy and exposed curtain pullers of the attack. This is the first terror trial case in India which has been completed in shortest possible time, Mr. Nikam said. Altogether 657 witnesses have been examined in this case. Kasab is charged with murder in connection with the terror strike that claimed 166 lives while coaccused Faheem Ansari and Sabauddin Ahmed, both Indians, are facing charges of participating in the conspiracy by providing maps of targets to the LeT.
