'Kasab statement can't be used against accused in Pak'

Postby admin » Wed Mar 10, 2010 2:06 am

In a significant ruling that could affect the trial of seven suspects charged with involvement in the Mumbai attacks in Pakistan, a bench of the Lahore High Court today ruled that the confessional statement of Ajmal Amir Kasab could not be used against the accused.

Kasab is the lone surviving gunman in the Mumbai terror attack and is being tried in a special court in the financial capital of India.

The Rawalpindi-based bench of the Lahore High Court gave its order in response to a petition filed by LeT commander Zakiur Rehman Lakhvi and other accused who are being tried by an anti-terrorism court for planning and help execute the 2008 attacks in Mumbai.

However, the High Court bench dismissed the plea by Lakhvi and the other accused for their acquittal.
