Islamabad, Jan.8 (ANI): After accepting that the lone surviving Mumbai gunner is a Pakistani national, Islamabad has now refused to give any official support to Ajmal Amir Kasab.

"Kasab has committed a heinous crime. He will not be provided any official support or consular access," the Daily Times quoted Pak Foreign Office Spokesman Muhammad Sadiq, as saying.

Earlier, after a prolonged delay in accepting that Kasab belonged to its soil, Pakistan finally accepted that Kasab was its national.

"Ajmal Kasab is a Pakistani. Further investigations are under way," Pakistan Information Minister Sherry Rehman said yesterday.

The acceptance from Pakistan comes after India provided a 'dossier' of evidence to prove that the perpetrators of the Mumbai carnage had links to Pakistan.

Kasab had written a letter to the Pakistani High Commission in India, seeking support and legal assistance from the Government of Pakistan.

However, Pakistan consulate had denied receiving any such letter. (ANI)
