I was denied legal help, Kasab tells apex courtJanuary 31st, 2012 - 11:00 pm ICT by IANS
New Delhi, Jan 31 (IANS) The 2008 Mumbai terror attack convict and Pakistani terrorist Ajmal Kasab Tuesday told the Supreme Court that he was denied fair trial as he was not provided legal assistance during the initial stages as mandated under the Indian constitution.
Once an accused, including a foreigner, is tried for an offence in India the provisions related to arrest as mentioned in the constitution get applied in his case.
“Denial of right to counsel at the earliest stage and denial of right to protection against self-incrimination” together vitiated the trial, amicus curiae (court appointed lawyer) Raju Ramachandra, appearing for Kasab, told the apex court bench of Justice Aftab Alam and Justice C.K. Prasad.
