Mumbai, Feb 26 (ANI): The police custody of Mohammad Ajmal Amir Kasab, the lone surviving terrorist of the 26/ 11 terror strikes, ends today.

On February 13, a magistrate’s court had remanded Kasab to police custody for his involvement in a blast that took place in a taxi at Vile Parle.

He has been in police custody since his arrest on the night of November 26 and booked in 12 cases by Mumbai police.

Besides Kasab, nine Lashkar-e-Taiba terrorists and twenty most wanted accused were named in the chargesheet.

These twenty accused are believed to be hiding in Pakistan and include Yousuf Muzzamil and Zaki-ur Rehman Lakhvi, the mastermind of 26/11.

Kasab faces numerous charges under the Indian Penal Code, ranging from waging war against a foreign country to murder. He has also been charged under the Unlawful Activities Prevention Act.

The chargesheet also presents Kasab’s conversation with his Pakistani handlers, his interrogation report and eyewitness accounts.

Kasab and Ismail Khan attacked the Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus on November killing 58 persons and injuring over 100. (ANI)
