Contradictory reports circulated in the Pakistani media Wednesday on Ajmal Amir Kasab, the lone terrorist captured during the Mumbai mayhem, with one TV channel reporting a case has been registered against him and another channel denying this. A case has been registered against Kasab and 13 others, Geo TV reported earlier during the day. Hours later, Dawn News channel quoted Interior Minister Rehman Malik as denying that a case had been registered. Geo TV said the case was registered on the basis of the probe conducted by Pakistan’s Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) and the decision taken by the defence committee of the cabinet at its meeting in Islamabad Monday. The case was registered under the Anti-Terrorism Act at the Dockyard Police Station in Karachi, the Geo TV channel added, quoting sources. “Sources further said that among the others named in the case were three persons who were arrested in Karachi. Nine more persons had been identified but were yet to be taken into custody,” Geo TV reported. The government has also sent notices to Geo TV, the Pakistani network which broke this news. Meanwhile, India refrained from commenting on confusing reports from Pakistan on filing of cases against Ajmal Amir Kasab, the lone surviving terrorist of Mumbai attacks, and 13 others, saying it would prefer to wait for any official communication.
