Now, Kasab chooses to reply in Marathi


“Mee bagitla nahin” (I did not see) and “mala mahit nahin sahib (I do not know sir) were his replies to the questions asked by Judge M L Tahaliyani.

To a question, Kasab said he was not aware that the DNA samples retrieved from the blood-stained clothes of deceased constable Tukaram Ombale and traces of blood found on bullets (removed from Ombale’s body) were of the same person.

It is the prosecution’s case that Kasab had shot Ombale when he was grappling with him at Girgaum Chowpatty as a result of which the latter was fatally injured. Kasab said he did not know that the DNA report had stated that sweat on a handkerchief found in Skoda car (used by terrorists) was of the slain terrorist Abu Ismael.

The captured terrorist said he was not aware that an Israeli cap found from Nariman House had matched with the DNA sample of another slain terrorist Abdul Rehman Chhota. He also feigned ignorance about a jacket found at another targeted site had matched with terrorist Abdul Rehman Bada, who too was killed.

To a question, Kasab said he was not aware that five cell phones had been shipped from China to Pakistan by a Karachi firm. Asked if he was aware that a mobile phone had been recovered from a terrorist at Hotel Oberoi, Kasab said “Mee bagitla nahin” (I did not see).
