Pak admits Kasab is a Pakistani

Ajmal Amir Kasab, the only terrorist arrested in the November 26 Mumbai terror attacks, is a Pakistani National. Pakistan's National Security Advisor Mahmud Ali Durrani confirmed this to CNN-IBN on Wednesday.

A British newspaper and Pakistani media have shown evidence that Kasab belonged to Faridkot village in Okara district of Punjab province but Islamabad for days has been rejecting their claims by saying that there was no documentary evidence. Massive diplomatic pressure from across the world may have forced Islamabad to change its stance.

On the other hand, the Dawn News channel, while quoting official sources, confirmed that Kasab was a Pakistani. An unnamed "very senior government official" told the channel that a preliminary investigation carried out by Pakistani law enforcement agencies had established that Kasab was a Pakistani national.

Much of India's evidence against the terrorists who attacked Mumbai is based on interrogations of Kasab, who was arrested on November 26. He has reportedly told authorities that he and his nine other attackers were Pakistani, he was trained in Pakistan, and his handlers are still there.
