Mumbai blast: Kasab says he is juvenile, court orders inquiry
Mumbai blast prime accused Kasab is a lucky guy, even if he is a terrorist.First of he survived in the combing operation and secondly he got an opportunity to use the loopholes of Indian Liberal judicial system.And he is getting all kind of possible help from the Indian lawyer.
Goverment allowed her mother to meet him without any precondition.In his last plea he claimed to be juvenile and he must be treated like juvenile and prosecuted according to the juvenile law.Unfortunately he will escape the capital punishment and enjoy the luxery of Indian hospitality in some world class jail.
How innocent he is, he killed hundred people and claims that he is juvenile.
Kasb must be waiting in hope that some day his peer in pakistan will release him by bargaining thousands of life.
A special court on Friday ordered an inquiry to determine whether the prime accused in Mumbai terror attacks case Mohammed Ajmal Amir
Kasab is a juvenile.
Judge M L Tahiliyani allowed special public prosecutor Ujjwal Nikam to examine witnesses comprising doctors and jailor on April 28 to find out whether Kasab was above 18 and not juvenile at the time of commission of offence.
The court also ordered jail authorities to take Kasab for ossification test and dental test to determine his age.
The radiologist and dentist who will conduct the test have been asked to submit a report on or before April 28.
Kasab will be taken for these tests under heavy security, his lawyer Abbas Kazmi told reporters here.
If the inquiry establishes that Kasab is juvenile, then the case will be transferred to the juvenile court. The maximum punishment prescribed under Juvenile Justice Act is maximum three years, Kazmi said.
The court ordered the inquiry after the prosecutor Nikam moved an application urging that the age of the accused may be determined before the charges are framed against him.
Earlier, Kasab had himself pleaded that he was juvenile and that the case should be transferred to Juvenile Justice Court but the court had turned down his plea and opined that he did not appear to be juvenile and if the court feels that anytime during trial that the inquiry should be held to determine his age it would do so.
