Mumbai, May 2: A special court deal with the trial of the prime accused in the 26/ 11 Mumbai terror attacks, Amir Azam Kasav is likely to give the verdict on the age of Kasav on Saturday, May 2.

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

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

The time given to Kasav for reading the charge sheet ends on Saturday, May 2. The court had earlier rejected his plea seeking to translate the extensive 11,000 page charge sheet into Urdu.

On Apr 29, Kasav made requests to the Special Court through his lawyer Abbas Kazmi asking for an Urdu Newspaper, perfume, toothpaste along with transferring his money to the jail account.

The court said that the provision of Urdu newspaper would be difficult however the requests for other items has been forwarded t jail superintendent to check if they can be provided or not based on the jail manual.
