Mumbai, Apr 19: Ajmal Kasab, aka Azam Amir Kasav, the Pakistani terrorist made another stunning revelation in his confession that he and his associate Abu Ismail were planning to attack the posh Malabar Hill area of south Mumbai on Nov 26, 2008.
"After carrying out the attacks on Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus that evening, the duo was planning to proceed towards Malabar Hill," Special Public Prosecutor Ujjwal Nikam said, shortly after the second day's hearing on Saturday, Apr 18. But the hijacked car in which Kasav and his associate was travelling, were stopped by the police near Chowpathy beach that night.
Malabar Hills is home to VVIPs, including Maharashtra chief minister, governor, high court judges, central and state ministers, high-ranking bureaucrats, politicians, industrialists, businessmen, scientists, diplomats, religious heads, leading academicians and expats.
The public prosecutor also said that Kasav has also revealed in his 40-page confessional statement how the attacks were planned in Pakistan. Ujjwal Nikam claimed that though Kasav now want to retract confession stating it was made under force, the denial will have no impact on the trial.
