Mumbai, Dec 30: Chargesheet against Azam Amir Kasav , the only terrorist captured in the Mumbai terror attacks, will be filed within Jan 26, 2009.

Kasav was on Saturday, Dec 27 shifted to Arthur Road jail where he underwent an identification parade. He was then brought back to the Crime Branch lock-up. In the identification parade, 25 eye witnesses identified him, said police sources.

Unconfirmed reports suggested that the trial against Kasav is to commence in the first week of Feb with the verdict expected by March end.

So far no lawyer has come forward to take up Kasav's case. Even Pakistan High Command has not reacted to Kasav's legal aid. Reacting to this, chief justice of India, KG Balakrishnan felt if Kasav does not get a lawyer to defend himself, he stands a fair chance of getting acquitted in the higher courts. Balakrishnan says Kasav could later argue in a higher court that the trial was vitiated as he could not present his case properly.
