Mumbai, Aug 7: Ajmal Amir Kasab, the lone terrorist detained in India for involvement in 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks, on Friday, Aug 7 said to court that he wanted to plead guilty to all charges framed against him.
However, the judge M L Tahaliyani told Kasab to discuss his plea with his lawyer, Abbas Kazmi and then inform the court.
Earlier, on Jul 20, Kasab had pleaded guilty in the court but had only accepted only some of charges. The court had accepted his partial 'admission of guilt' and decided to continue with the trial.
Kasab on Friday, Aug 7 told the judge, "Main sab kabool karna chahta hoon (I want to plead guilty to all charges)." Kasab made the plea when the court was examining a ballistic expert as witness in the case.
The judge then asked, "Achanak kya hua? Aise kyun kar rahe ho? (What happened suddenly? Why are you doing this?). Has anybody explained what are the charges against you? Earlier you had not accepted all, but some of the charges."
Kasab remained calm while telling the court that he wanted to plead guilty to all charges.
