Ajmal Kasab was a fan of Mukesh: lawyer
"During our meetings, Kasab used to request us to convince the court to allow him some newspapers as he was in solitary confinement and had no one to talk to," Solkar said.
"Kasab once requested me and my lawyer colleague Farhana Shah to ask the court to keep him with other convicts who have been awarded death sentence," Solkar said adding that he perhaps wanted to socialise.
Both Solkar and Shah were appointed by the High Court to defend Kasab and argue his appeal against death sentence. Solkar further said that Kasab did not approve their questions on his terror strikes on November 26, 2008, as he evaded them saying he did not remember. "It appeared to us that he did not want to remember those events (firing at people and police). He often told us that he did not know what happened to him then and also that he did not remember those incidents," he said.
The lawyer said Kasab once told them that he did not know how all those terror strikes happened on November 26, 2008, and how he got involved. However, he had admitted that he was from Pakistan and that his family was based there.Kasab had also told his lawyers that he missed his family and had written to the Pakistan Consulate seeking union with his family and legal help. But he never received response and this had saddened him, Solkar said. Recalling conferences
