Mumbai: Advocate Anjali Waghmare will not defend lone captured terrorist of Mumbai terror attacks Ajmal Kasab as she is already representing one of the victims of the attack in another case, the special sessions court today said.
The court, set up to try Kasab and two other arrested accused in the Mumbai attacks case, is now consulting the prosecution regarding appointment of a new lawyer for Kasab.
Advocate K Lam, who had earlier expressed the desire to defend Kasab, had petitioned the court last week, saying that Waghmare should not appear in this case, as she was representing one of the victims of the 26/11 attacks in a compensation claim.
The court said Waghmare should have informed the court about this when she was appointed as Kasab’s lawyer, and removed her as his counsel.
