Kasab denies 26/11 role, says lawyer not cooperating

January 22, 2010 17:32 IST

Ajmal Amir Kasab, the lone terrorist caught alive during the November 26, 2008 attacks in Mumbai, has retracted from his guilt plea made in the trial court last July.

On Friday, Kasab told the court that he had admitted to being part of the attack due to police pressure.

The alleged Lashkar-e-Tayiba terrorist also complained to the trial court that his lawyer, KP Pawar, was not cooperating.

He even denied attending LeT terror camps in Pakistan for training and having accompanied the terrorists, who took the sea route to arrive in Mumbai to unleash carnage.

More details are awaited.
