Mumbai: As the much-awaited chargesheet against Ajmal Amir Kasab will be filed on Wednesday, the lone surviving militant of the November 26 Mumbai terror attacks has also been booked for entering the Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus without a platform ticket.

More than 12 different cases have been filed against Kasab, who is presently in custody.

During the Mumbai attacks, maximum number of casualties were reported from the CST — more than 50 persons were killed here.

Here, the attack was launched by Kasab and Abu Ismail, leader of the group of 10 terrorists who entered Mumbai from the sea.

Mumbai attacks: Chargesheet to be filed tomorrow

From Badhwar Park area, where the five teams split, Kasab and Ismail went to the CST in a taxi and entered the platform from the far end of the station. Then they went to the main waiting hall of the upcountry train terminus side. The duo hurled grenades and opened fire with AK-47 rifles there.

The duo entered the suburban side and escaped. Finally, Kasab was caught near Girgaum Chowpatty and Ismail shot dead.

But, when they entered the CST, they violated railway rules — they did not have platform tickets -- said sources. Hence, the case against Kasab, the sources added.
