The News Minute | March 21, 2015 | 5.21 pm IST It’s no wonder that “Kasab” and “Ujwal Nikam” are trending on Twitter after the special public prosecutor said that he had cooked up a mutton biryani story about Kasab for the media. Special Public Prosecutor Ujwal Nikam who represented the government during the trial of Ajmal Kasab who was convicted of carrying out the 2008 Mumbai terror attacks and subsequently executed for it, said that he had cooked up the story about Kasab asking for mutton biryani when in jail.  Read: India had a watertight case against Kasab, then why make up a lie about the mutton biryani? After the Indian Express published the report carrying Nikam’s statement, Twitterati naturally responded to the remarks.
