Karachi, Dec. 31 (ANI): Ansar Burney Trust Chairman and Pakistan's former federal minister for human rights, Ansar Burney has appealed to the Indian government to allow him to get in touch with Ajmal Kasab, who was allegedly involved in The Mumbai attacks.

Burney said that Kasab's confession recorded in custody could not be valued legally to establish any unlawful activities committed by him unless the confession is supported by independent evidence available in the crime, the Daily Times reported.

Kasab supposedly hails from Faridkot village in Pakistan, who was captured on November 26 after a group of terrorists launched attacks in Mumbai.

Burney also expressed dissatisfaction over Kasab's ongoing trial, while requesting the Indian government for a complete access to Kasab so that he could request to his fellow members at the United Nations Human Rights Council's Advisory Committee for a fair and impartial investigation. (ANI)
