Mumbai crime branch Chief Joint Commissioner of Police, Rakesh Maria has confirmed that Azam Amir Kasav, the terrorist captured alive after the attacks, has written to the Pakistan High Commission seeking legal help.
Kasav has confessed to his role in the 26/11 attacks in a three-page letter written in Urdu, Maria stated.
Kasav is also reported to have admitted to being a Pakistani national and a part of the Lashkar-e-Toiba operations.
Kasav has also reportedly disclosed details of the LeT leaders and named Zaki-ur-rehman Lakhvi, LeT chief Hafeez Sayeed and Mohammad Kahafa as the key players in the group's training.
He has also reportedly requested the Pakistan High Commission to take custody of the body of fellow terrorist Ismail Khan and bury him according to Islamic laws.
Ajmal's letter has been forwarded by the Mumbai police to the External Affairs and the Union Home Ministries for necessary action.
However, the Pakistan High Commission in Delhi denied having received any letter from Kasav. "We have not received any letter," a Pakistan High Commission spokesman said.
Islamabad is continuing to demand what it has called 'solid proof' of its involvement in the Mumbai attacks. Meanwhile, India on its part is maintaining that evidence will be shared at the appropriate time.
