Kasab says no to video conference, insists on coming to court

Mumbai, Oct 22 (PTI) Pakistani terrorist Ajmal Kasab is not satisfied with video conference link and has demanded that he should be produced in person before the Bombay High Court which is hearing petitions on the death sentence awarded to him for his role in the 26/11 attacks.

Kasab told his lawyers Amin Solkar and Farhana Shah, who met him in Arthur Road Central Jail yesterday, that he wanted to come to the Court personally.

"He does not believe in video conference and insists that he should be produced personally," Farhana Shah told PTI.

"We explained to him that he has threat perception but Kasab still insists on appearing personally before the High Court," Shah said.

23-year-old Kasab also told his lawyers that his case may be referred to an international court dealing with human rights violation as he "does not believe in Indian judicial system". However, he did not elaborate, she said.
