“MYSORE: Rejecting the free legal aid offered to him by the court, the suspected militant from Pakistan Mohammed Fahad has informed the Mysore court that he would like to defend himself on the terror charges framed against him by the police.
After the charges were read out to Fahad and co-accused Ali Hussain in the III Additional Sessions Court in Mysore on Wednesday, the judge, Uma, asked Fahad to avail of the free legal aid services. Fahad rejected the offer and sought permission to write to Pakistan High Commission for a counsel to defend him. When the judge said it was not possible for the court to issue any directions in the regard, Fahad said he would argue the case himself.
Special Public Prosecutor Ashwini Kumar Joshi told The Hindu that the court has fixed September 5 as the next date of hearing.
"The accused said that he does not trust the Indian Lawyers, and needs a lawyer from Pakistan." As reported by a National Television News Channel TV-9.
