Kasab’s remand extended till Feb13

MUMBAI: Ajmal Amir Kasab, the lone survival of Mumbai attacks, was on Monday remanded in police custody till February 13 for murdering the captain of a Gujarat-based fishing vessel. Kasab, whose police custody in the Chhatrapati Shivaji rail terminus firing case ended on Monday, has been booked in 12 cases by the city police and is in judicial custody in five other cases.

He was arrested on November 26, was not produced in the court due to security concerns and Additional Metropolitan Magistrate N Shrimangale and Additional Public Prosecutor EB Dhamal were taken to an undisclosed location where he is being kept. “It was argued that the police had to carry out further investigations in the case for which custody was needed,” Dhamal said. It’s pertinent to mention that Kasab had no legal representation in the case.-SANA
