The 26/11 trial in Mumbai will be closely watched on Tuesday after Ajmal Kasab’s sudden confession.
The big question now is whether his confession will bring about an early end to what was expected to be a long drawn out trial. The options before the court are many:
* It may accept Kasab’s confession at face value and declare Kasab guilty.
* Another option before the judge could be to determine if the confession was made under duress.
* The court may also ask the prosecution to provide evidence to back confession.
But the prosecution is wary of Kasab’s confession. They say there are several unanswered questions.
