Mumbai, Apr 28 (ANI): A special court here today ruled that Mohammed Ajmal Amir Kasab, the lone survivor of the November 2008 Mumbai terror attacks, is not a minor.

The court ruling was based on ossification and blood tests submitted to it. The reports claim that Kasab is aged above 20 years.

The medical reports have been handed over to Special Public Prosecutor Ujwal Nikam, who continues to demand that he would like to examine two witnesses.

On April 24, a court had ordered an inquiry to determine the age of Kasab. The court’s order came after Kasab claimed to have been a minor at the time of Mumbai carnage.

Special Court Judge M. L. Tahiliyani said then that a radiologist and a forensic dentist would examine Kasab. Tahiliyani also allowed special public prosecutor Ujjwal Nikam to examine witnesses comprising doctors and jailor.

The trial is to resume on May 2. (ANI)
