Arrested terrorist Azam Amir Kasav, alias Ajmal Kasab has stopped eating for the last two days. Kasab, currently in crime branch custody, has been lodged in the lockup at the commisserate's office since he was caught near Girgaum Chowpatty on Wednesday night. Since Kasab's arrest, the police have been trying hard to get more information from him about his group, but he seems to be a tough nut to crack.
Kasab has stopped eating to avoid police torture since he was discharged from the Nair hospital on Thursday afternoon. "Neither is he eating anything nor has he agreed to reveal anything about his links," an officer from the crime branch said.
Interrogators have tried feeding him a couple of times. The officers have also revealed that Kasab has been repeatedly requesting them to kill him.
Kasab was arrested by D B Marg Police, his companion Abu Ismail was killed. Kasab was injured. Both were taken to Nair hospital at Mumbai Central.
According to an on duty policeman at Nair hospital, Kasab was treated and Abu's body is lying in the mortuary.
"Azam was saying he was cheated. Abu was his boss and the mastermind. Abu had ordered him to kill people," the policeman said.
In earlier interrogations Kasab revealed that his team undertook the assignment in the belief that they would come out alive and it wasn't a suicide mission. The police found a chart of their proposed return route by sea.
Kasab, the sole surviving terrorist is a 21-year-old allegedly from Faridkot in PoK, (Pakistan occupied Kashmir). He reportedly told the police that they wanted to do replicate the attack on Islamabad's JW Marriott hotel, and reduce the Taj Mahal hotel to rubble. They also wanted to replicate the 9/11 attacks in India.
Kasab allegedly made another important disclosure, that all terrorists were trained in marine warfare in Pakistan. The training camp was conducted by the Lashkar-e-Taiba .
