Kasab's mother to come to India to visit him

April 14, 2009 22:37 IST
The mother of Ajmal Kasab, the lone surviving gunman in the Mumbai terror attack case, is coming to India to meet him, as the stage is set for the start of the trial of the Pakistani national in Mumbai on Wednesday.

External Affairs Minister Pranab Mukherjee referred to the visit of Kasab's mother while stressing that Pakistan should not delay investigations on the pretext of clarifications, a day after Islamabad sought more specific information from New Delhi on its probe into the Mumbai attacks.

Kasab is currently lodged in a high security central prison in Arthur road in Mumbai.

Mukherjee told media persons in Jangipur in West Bengal that it was a reality that many people were killed in the Mumbai attacks, one terrorist had been arrested and that he had made certain confessions.

His mother was also coming to Mumbai to meet him, he said. "These are the realities. These are the facts. If somebody wants to evade and avoid these facts, what can we do?" he asked.

"The matter should not be delayed on this or that issue, or on this or that clarification. We are prepared to give them any information that they want, provided we have the information," Mukherjee said.
