Mumbai: Indian police on Wednesday charged Mohammed Ajmal Kasab in November’s Mumbai attacks with “waging war” against India, drawing up the first formal charges in the case, a government lawyer said.
Special public prosecutor Ujjwal Nikam told reporters that the charge sheet named 37 other people, including Indians and Pakistanis, with planning and abetting the attacks that killed 183 people and revived tensions between India and Pakistan.
Nikam said Kasab was not produced in the court because of security concerns. The next hearing of the case is on 9 March.
