India: Gunman Asks For Pakistan’s Help
India has presented Pakistan with a letter it says comes from the lone surviving gunman from last month’s terror attacks in Mumbai. Indian authorities say the attackers were from Pakistan and the gunman in custody has asked for help from Islamabad.
Wait, before you go…
“In his letter addressed to the Pakistan High Commission, Kasab [Qasab] has stated that he and the other terrorists killed in the attack were from Pakistan and has sought a meeting with the Pakistan High Commission,” the ministry said.
Reports suggested the letter contained a request for legal help from Pakistan. Indian lawyers have so far refused to represent Mr Qasab in court.
