Court to give verdict on Kasab's age today

By Super Admin

Mumbai, May 2 (ANI): A special court here today will give its verdict on the age of Mohammed Ajmal Amir Kasab, the lone survivour of Mumbai terror attacks.

Earlier, a special court had ruled that Kasab is not a minor. The court ruling was based on ossification and blood tests submitted to it. The reports claim that Kasab is aged above 20 years.

On April 24, a court had ordered an inquiry to determine the age of Kasab. The court's order came after Kasab claimed to have been a minor at the time of Mumbai carnage.

In another development, the lawyer representing Kasab told a Special Court that his client has made four fresh requests.

Abbas Kazmi said four demands include (1) Urdu language newspaper (2) His money should be placed in the jail account (3) He should be allowed to stroll in the verandah outside his jail cell and (4) He should be provided with flavored toothpaste.Kazmi told the court that his client is mentally frustrated and tense and physically weak.

He said that the judge had said that providing his client with a Urdu newspaper would be difficult, and as far as the other items were concerned, the requests would be forwarded to the jail superintendent and whatever is feasible under the jail manual, would be provided.(ANI)
