Witness turns hostile, tells 26/11 trial that Kasab is alive

LAHORE (TIP): Prosecution in Mumbai attack case faced embarrassment when a key witness turned hostile saying that Ajmal Kasab, the lone gunman caught alive after the assault and later hanged, was alive.

“Mudassir Lakhvi, the headmaster of a primary school in Faridkot, where Ajmal Kasab studied for three years told the court that he taught Kasab and he is alive,” a court official said on Thursday.

The hearing of the case was held by the Anti-Terrorism Court Islamabad judge at Adiala Jail Rawalpindi on Wednesday, around the same time when Pakistan assured India of “steps being taken to expedite the early conclusion” of the Mumbai attack trial. The headmaster made no reference to Kasab (hanged in India) and did not mention if he (Kasab) was the same person who studied in the school in Faridkot. The witness earlier had also claimed that Kasab could be produced in court if needed. The next hearing in the case would be held on December 16.
