Kasab then stood up in his dock and requested the court that he be provided with books from with his money seized by the police at the time of his capture. The court told him that this would not be possible because the money had now become the property of the court. Kasab had Rs 4,580 in his pockets when he was captured at Girgaum Chowpatti.
