Mumbai gunman attacker pleads guilty

Mumbai gunman attacker pleads guilty
Text size Aa Aa

The sole surviving gunman from last year’s deadly attacks in Mumbai, has made a surprise u-turn and pleaded guilty.

Mohammad Ajmal Kasab, who faces 86 separate offences including murder and waging war against India, admitted his role in the three day rampage that killed 166 people. Kasab, who originally pleaded not guilty, now faces a possible death sentence. The 21 year old Pakistani national was the only member of a 10 man gun crew captured alive during the coordinated attacks, which saw two luxury hotels, a Jewish centre and Mumbai’s train station targeted. India says 38 other suspects remain at large in Pakistan. The events in Mumbai led to a full scale diplomatic crisis between India and Pakistan in which New-Delhi broke off five-year peace talks. Initially Islamabad denied any responsibility but later admitted the attacks had been planned on its soil.
