Mumbai, Sep 30: Ajmal Amir Kasab accepted to confess his role in the terror attacks as he wanted to inspire others, said a city magistrate.
Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Rama Vijay Sawant Vagule said Kasab was produced before her on Tuesday, Feb17.
She added that he was given 24 hours to confess.
"On Feb 18, when Kasab was produced again before me, he reiterated that he wanted to confess. He showed no remorse for his crime and told me that he wanted to confess so that others may derive inspiration from his action," Vagule told the Court.
"I also asked him whether there was any promise or force exerted upon him to confess and I also reminded him again that it was not obligatory on his part to confess and also that it would be used against him in the trial for sentencing him."
