AJMAL Amir Kasab - accused in the 26/11 Mumbai attacks - expressed a desire for somebody to tie him a 'rakhi on the occasion of the Indian festival of Raksha Bandhan on Wednesday, his lawyer said, reports The Times of India. He expressed his desire after he saw several people in court sporting colourful 'rakhis during the days proceedings, his government-appointed lawyer SG Abbas Kazmi told mediapersons. Taken aback by the request, Kazmi informed him that if any woman considered Kasab as her brother, she could tie a rakhi on his wrist. Later, Kazmi also explained to Kasab the meaning and importance of Raksha Bandhan, which symbolises the love and protective bond between brothers and sisters. Kasab is being tried at a special court in Mumbai for the 26/11 Mumbai attacks, in which at least 170 people were killed. He is the lone survivor among the 10 gunmen involved in the strike.
