Ultras tried to negotiate Kasab's release

The information was revealed in the special court on Tuesday, when the prosecution played a CD recording of an intercept of conversation between one of the two terrorists, the Israeli envoy and an interpreter. Nariman House or Chabad House was the prayer and guest house of the orthodox Jewish sect of the same name and was one of the targets of the Pakistani attackers.

Without naming Kasab, terrorist Babar Imran, during his telephonic talk with the Israeli envoy, told him that “Usko chhod do warna hum sab rumali ko mar denge (Release him or we will kill all hostages).” Imran was accompanied by another terrorist identified as Nasir.

The envoy, who was talking to the terrorist through an interpreter asked Imran, “What is your friend’s (Kasab) name?” To this, Imran replied, “Aap ko pata hai aur police ko pata hai (you are aware and so is the police).”
The prosecution’s case is that the Pakistani terrorists were kept informed about the happenings in Mumbai by their Pakistan-based handlers who were constantly watching the security operations on television.

Imran had the knowledge that Kasab was captured by the police, and that he tried to negotiate his release through the Israeli envoy.
