A teacher, who allegedly taught the 2008 Mumbai attack convict Ajmal Kasab, on Thursday told a Pakistani
court that the Ajmal he knew is alive and was not the one hanged in India.
“I taught Ajmal but he was not the one hanged in India in connection with the Mumbai attacks,” said the teacher of a primary school Faridkot, Deplapur, Okara district of Punjab province, some 120 kilometres from Lahore.
“Ajmal Kasab whom I taught is alive and one hanged in India was not enrolled in this school,” the teacher said and submitted the school record of the student, sources told PTI.
The teacher was a prosecution witness in the Anti Terrorism Court, Islamabad, that is currently hearing the case of the attack in India’s financial capital that killed 166 people in November, 2008.
Another witness, head of the Hindi department of NAMAL University, Punjab – who translated Kasab’s statement into English – also appeared in the court, but could not submit the translation as the defence raised objection, saying Kasab’s statement had yet to be made part of the case.
