Mumbai: The two lawyers appointed by the
Bombay High Court to argue Ajmal Kasab`s appeal against his
death sentence in the 26/11 attack case, on Saturday met the
Pakistani terrorist at the Arthur Road jail here.

On June 8, the High Court had appointed Amin Solkar
and Farhana Shah as lawyers to argue Kasab`s appeal.

"We met Kasab for about 20 minutes in his cell and
spoke to him about the case. We told him that the high court
had appointed both of us to argue his appeal and he said
`shukriya` (thank you)," Shah told PTI.

Shah said they collected the copy of the judgement
from Kasab and told him that they would study it and then file
the appeal in the high court.

"Kasab told us a lot many things but all that is
privileged and we cannot disclose," Shah said.

According to Shah, said it would take at least one
month for them to file the appeal because they had to through
the judgement carefully.

Kasab had written a letter in Urdu to the high court
through the jail authorities about his intention to file an
appeal and seeking lawyer to argue his case.

On May 3, the trial court judge M L Tahaliyani had
held Kasab guilty of murder of 166 people in the November 26
terror attack and also found him responsible for waging war
against the nation. Later, the court sentenced him to death
for these offences.
