New Delhi: 22-year-old Pakistani terrorist
Ajmal Kasab, sentenced to death in the Mumbai terror attacks
case, has been "hanged" a number of times.

A new game, `Hang kasab`, has hit the online gaming
market with players visiting the website to send Kasab to the
gallows as many times as possible in a given time.

The game available on `www.onlinerealgames.com` is
getting a mixed response in the Internet world if one goes by
the comments of the gamers.

While some players call it a way of expression of anger
others are not so excited about the game. Some of the players
even wrote how they felt after hanging Kasab.

"Nice feeling while hanging kasabbbbbbbbbbbbbb..." was
what a gamer using the ID of sanjurocks wrote on the website.

"The idea for the game came up when we read about news
articles that there is no hangman to hang Kasab. I said why
not do it in the virtual world," Maruti Sankar, managing
director of 7Seas Technologies, which runs the website said.

Sankar said he got inspired by an online game, which was
developed after the infamous shoe throwing incident involving
former American President George W Bush.

"That game was played by millions. Majority of our users
are Indians living in the country and they have all followed
Kasab`s trial for the last so many months. We are all
patriotic and want to do our bit in hanging Kasab," Sankar
said.
