Remember the face of terror from Day 1, the one in the Versace t-shirt? He does not want to die.

Azam Amir Qasab, the 21-year-old terrorist who caused havoc at the Chhatrapati Shivaji terminus killing many, on November 26, 2008, is the only terrorist to have been captured by the Mumbai police. Azam Amir Qasab has said, in a statement given at the DB Marg (Lamington Road) police station, that he was trained by the marine wing of the Lashkar-e-Tayiba (LeT) in Pakistan for two years, and was asked to cause maximum casualties in Mumbai, and also blow up the Taj.

The first pictures of the Mumbai terror attacks showed Azam Amir Qasab walking outside the Mumbai CST station, holding what looked like an AK-47 and wearing a dark tee with ‘Versace’ lettering on it. His face was caught on a security camera. Later photos of Mumbai Mirror’s Sebastian D’Souza showed him casually gesturing (possibly to the other terrorist) inside the CST station in the middle of the carnage.

The photographer said that he was a bit far away, the two terrorists probably noticed him taking their pictures but did not seem concerned.

After he was captured, initially he pretended to be dead, and later was arrested when the cops noticed he was alive. Police sources said that he panicked when he later saw the mutilated body of the slain terrorist, and shouted, “I do not want to die, put me on saline.”

Reports have said that in his statement, Qasab revealed all the details of the operation. He said that the LeT had trained fifteen men for the operation for three months, in Muzzafarabad in Pakistan. After a one-month break, they were trained how to hijack vessels at sea. They were given digital maps of Mumbai.

He also said that the group was led to believe that they would return on November 27, 2008.

A return route had been stored on the GPS device that the terrorist group that used to reach Mumbai by sea.

Azam Amir Qasab said that bombs had been planted in the Taj Mahal hotel long ago. He also said that he booked a room in the Taj to store explosives.

The ground work for the operation was laid four months ago when a recce of all the targets were conducted by the terrorist group. The whole group of terrorists had fake Indian identity cards, and they posed as students.

The operation began with 15 terrorists landing in Mumbai in a boat from Karachi, carrying explosives, inflatable rafts, and weapons.

Then at Porbandar, the group of terrorists hijacked an Indian fishing trawler. The men in the trawler were forced to sit in the terrorist’s boat and sent to Karachi, when the boat headed back. The terrorists then took control of the trawler and kept one member of the trawler’s crew hostage, who was later killed just before the group landed in Mumai.

The group was split into two batches. One landed on Sassoon Dock, and the other landed at Badhwar Park in Cuffe Parade in their inflatable dinghies.

Azam Amir Qasab with Abu Ismail Dera Ismail Khan went to CST where they fired indiscriminately at commuters. They then headed to Rang Bhavan.

In the meantime, ATS chief Hemant Karkare along with encounter specialist Vijay Salaskar, and additional commissioner Ashok Kampte took a police Qualis vehicle and went towards Cama Hospital.

Around the corner of Rang Bhavan, Azam Amir Qasab and Abu Ismail Dera Ismail Khan fired at the vehicle and killed the policemen in the Qualis.

The two then got into the Qualis and moved towards Metro cinema with Qasab driving and Abu Ismail shooting at the police chasing them.  A tyre of the Qualis was punctured; the two then hijacked a Skoda throwing out the occupants of the car.

They were stopped at a police check point, where Ismail Khan was shot dead and Qasab was captured. Here, Azam shot dead assistant police inspector Tukaram Umbale before his capture.

An injured Qasab was taken to Nair Hospital, and subsequently moved to another government hospital. Qasab was interrogated by the ATS and he kept saying that he didn’t want to die and that he should be put on saline. He also showed no remorse and said that he had done right.

Azam Amir Qasab belongs to Faridkot in the Chipaalpura taluka of Ukhad zilla in Pakistan.

    A proper execution for the crimes this slimy little git has committed should take at least ten days. Modern technology can keep the bastard alive in the greatest possible amount of pain for quite a while. When he finally dies, chop him up and mix him in with pig feed.

    Whether they were terrorists or not, using the word “terrorist” over and over again is not objective journalism. It is propaganda at best, and scare mongering at worst.

    Are you for real? Propaganda? What else are you going to call them? This isn’t a case of “you say terrorist I say Freedom Fighter”. There is no other label appropriate for a group of men that indiscriminately killed hundreds of random civilians. They’re goal was to incite terror. You’re an idiot. Take your bull shit elsewhere.

    texture: “Most common definitions of terrorism include only those acts which are intended to create fear (terror)”. What part of the definition of terrorist do these guys *not* fall in to? Just because Americans seem to think it means only brown people who follow a certain religion doesn’t automatically redefine the term for the globe. The journalist is using the proper term.

    Those calling for the brutal painful slaughter of him sicken me. You’re obviously American. There are far more civilised methods of dealing with him than “chop his hands, legs and willy off and keep him alive for 50 years” or “chop him up and mix him in with pig feed” – seriously, are you that fucking ignorant you want to stoop to the level of a twisted murder in the name of revenge. How are you then better than him, if you advocate killing. Or is that what Jesus would want you to do ?

    This guy is a treasure,. India is finally able to prove without any doubt that Pakistani interests are behind all terrorism in India. This guy needs to be studied to see how such terrorists are developed / recruited. I hope they keep him safe at least for a few years and then kill him by firing squad.

    Faizal, I am a Hindu. However I have to take exception to your “Pakistan should be destroyed” comment. No entire country deserves to be destroyed. There are innocents there as well. Why is it that many of these terrorists are young ? Because their vulnerable minds can be easily brainwashed by the shadowy figures and masterminds that run the operation from the background. Qasab should be interrogated to reveal the names of these kingpins. Most likely it will reveal some key people in ISI and maybe even CIA playing some double games. Who knows, this Qasab dude probably lost relatives in war in Kashmir and could be easily brainwashed into becoming a ‘martyr’.

    What a complete farce ! You people really believe this story to be true, this is a serious situation and the full story is not known. If the reporter that wrote this report knows this much then he/she is working for the intelligence unit or something.
    As far as bombing Pakistan goes, what will that solve Faizal? Two wrongs do not make a right and India has in the past blamed Pakistan when it was their own Hindu militants responsible, blame went to Pakistan nearly 100 times actually. Should India bomb themselves too then?

    Pakistan is a international migrane…….no medicine……………………its is fucked up totally and there government is just for name sake, actually there is no government, some powerful persons rule it. I recently met friend who was in pakistan and i was shocked, u must have security if u wanna go out otherwise u will be fucked up. people are killing for one piece of bread….its real….believe or not. I dont think why these people want enemity with India, knowing that they will never win with super power. Pakistanis are cowards and using another way…terrorism. Unless they stop such activities they will never gonna improve….I dont understand why they want J and K. First try to feed ur countrymen instead spending on military. This comment applies only some fucking pakis and I know there are innocent and nice persons there.

    Deepak Chopra is an expert on Global terrorism too? In fact, he said that we should get rid of the term “War on terrorism.” If that kind of naivety weren’t so sad, it would be funny.

    HINDU’S WERE RESPONSIBLE FOR THIS ACT OF TERRORISM LIKE USUAL AND THEY BLAME THE PAKISTANI’S WITHOUT ANY PROOF LIKE USUAL ! ! !

    WAKE UP PEOPLE AND SMELL THE COFFEE, THE TRUTH IS INDIA BLAMES PAKISTAN FOR ANYTHING THAT GOES WRONG IN THEIR COUNTRY BECAUSE THEY CAN’T ADMIT TO THE FACT THAT THEY CAN’T CONTROL ANYTHING N BLAMIN SOMEONE ELSE MAKES IT EASIER ! SHOW SOME PROOF N MAYBE SOMEONE WILL FEEL SORRY FOR YOU OTHERWISE SHUT UP AND STOP WHININGNYOU FOOLS.

    THIS GUY IS A HINDU, N IF SOMEONE CAN PROVE OTHERWISE GO AHEAD SHOW ME WHAT YOU GOT.

    True to habit, India started blaming Pakistan for the terrorist attack on it soil even before the day was out – this time for the condemnable events of Mumbai.
    Several facts should provide a reality check. First, the Russians have revealed they had provided advance information to New Delhi about the attacks, but the Indians did not respond.

    Second, the BBC interviewed a cook who works for Leopold Café where the terrorists initiated their operations. He said that six or seven people had come to the joint, got something to eat, along with alcoholic beverages but refused to pay, saying in English they had no money (Nov 27). After getting drunk, they started firing at the people in the vicinity.

    If these were Lashkar-i-Taiba operatives or some other Muslim extremists, they would never have consumed liquor because Islam forbids that. Also, the Lashkar has denied any involvement. It may be interesting to recall that in March 2000, when President Bill Clinton had reached India on a state visit, 36 Sikhs were massacred by a group of people dressed in Indian army uniforms, as partly narrated by another correspondent (Nov. 23).

    That time too Pakistan-based militants were blamed. However, an eyewitness had revealed that these people had been drinking. A subsequent inquiry by a retired Indian judge had found Indian agencies responsible for the killings. The obvious reason for this deceit was to prove to the dignitary that Pakistan was abetting terrorism, so as to get it declared a state sponsor.

    Fortunately, Mr Clinton was able to see through this Indian game and has been quoted by his secretary of state as saying it was the work of Hindu militants. But, this slap on New Delhi’s face hasn’t ended its propensity to defame Pakistan.Similarly, after the attack on Indian parliament, Islamabad was blamed and one of the suspects, a Kashmiri man named Afzal Guru, was sentenced to die. But, some Indian human rights activists had shown the police findings to be wrong and demanded his release.

    Third, Indian security people claim to have arrested one of the Mumbai terrorists, saying he is a Pakistani named Ajmal Amir Kamal hailing from Faridkot in Multan (Nov 28). However, a BBC correspondent visited the area and found that there is no such village near Multan. There is one near Khanewal having 2,000 residents, but they said nobody by this name ever lived there (Nov 28).Fourth, for some of the past cases Hindu fanatics have now been found responsible, such as Lt Col Purohit. In fact, the chief of Mumbai’s anti-terrorist squad, Hemant Karkare, who unfortunately got killed in the latest episode, had reportedly been threatened by some of these Hindu extremists after he found leads to their culpability. From the foregoing facts, it would be prudent to investigate highly trained Hindu militants with army links, for the Mumbai carnage.

    Did Pakistan blame these pricks for the Marriot Hotel bombings even though they could’ve been responsible? No they didn’t because they don’t want a media frenzy and the sympathy vote like India wants, I really feel sorry for you pathetic Indians who can moan all you want but what you gonna do about it !

    ”India always prides itself on being a democracy, yet human rights are violated every single day It is time to raise our voices, and show enough is enough The Indian government has supported the killing of Dalits, Muslims, Sikhs and Christians and many other groups November 26, 2008 Mumbai attack may be a reaction of killing of innocent people by Indian security forces Current security situation is the result of the governments` (past and present) poor handling of matters Indian Government & Media will try to cash this attack and will start killing of innocent Muslims & minorities in India again I am also confident on my prdiction that India will blame Pakista, ISI & Kashmiri`s in recent attack Also, how can Indian Government & Media blame a whole relegion for the actions of a few?”

    It is unfortunate that indian government and media started blaming game against pakistan without any proof As we know in past on many incidents india blame ISI and pakistnai militants as samjhuta Express incident but later on it proves to be wrong rather some indian extremist organization involved in this And the key point is indian government and media is “so efficient AND CLEVER “ to finding relation of terrorist with pakistan MAY THEY EVER BE ABLE TO FIND THESE TERRORIST BEFORE SUCH INCIDENTS?

And how convenient…he didn’t die of all the other terrorists, he was arrested of all the the other terrorists and he blamed pakistan for training of all othe other countries!? :S

    FINE ok if India believes Pakistan is capable of such horrific acts then why don’t u sharpen ur intelligence system…improve it! Why do u only wake up when it’s all done?! :S If i was an indian and if im sure my neighbouring countries are trouble makers i would be more alert! India is famous for its IT industry….use it for ur defence as well!
