Islamabad, Feb 14 (IANS) Pakistan said Saturday it might seek the custody of Ajmal Amir Kasab, the lone terrrorist captured during the Mumbai mayhem, to aid its investigations into the carnage.

“If Ajmal Kasab is needed for the investigation process, then India could be asked for handing him over,” Interior Minister Rehman Malik told reporters in the southern port city of Karachi, adding that at the moment, it would be premature to say anything else in the matter

He said that Kasab was one of the eight suspects named in a first information report registered by the Federal Investigation Agency on the Mumbai strikes. Six of the suspects have been arrested while two are at large.

Kasab is currently in the custody of the Mumbai police.
