26/11 case: 10 year-old girl identifies KasavJune 10th, 2009 - 5:27 pm ICT by ANI
Mumbai, June 10 (ANI): A 10 year-old girl, who suffered bullet injuries during the November 26 terror attack at the Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus (CST), identified Mohammed Ajmal Kasav as the gunman in court on Wednesday.
The prosecution examined the first eyewitnesses to the firing at the CST on Wednesday.
Four eyewitnesses were to be examined.
Over 50 persons were killed and close to 90 were injured when Kasav, the sole surviving gunman to be arrested, and Ismail allegedly started firing indiscriminately inside the busy railway terminus in south Mumbai on November 26 2008.
The prosecution has completed the examination of witnesses in the Girgaum shootout, in which policeman Tukaram Ombale was killed, and the murder of Amarsingh Solanki, navigator of the fishing vessel `MV Kuber’ which the terrorists hijacked to reach Indian waters.
“After we began the trial on May 8 we have so far examined 48 witnesses in both these cases despite the defence not admitting formal documents and attempting to delay the trial by arguing that Kasav is a juvenile,” Special Public Prosecutor Ujjwal Nikam said. (ANI)
