Kasab to appeal to SC against death verdict
Mumbai: Ajmal Amir Kasab, the Pakistani terrorist convicted for the 26/11 attacks on Mumbai, will appeal to the Supreme Court against the death sentence awarded to him, his lawyer said here Wednesday.
The Bombay High Court Monday upheld the death sentence the trial court awarded to Kasab for his role in the 26/11 attack.
"In my brief meeting with Kasab, I told him that he can file appeal to the Supreme Court challenging the death sentence awarded to him," Kasab`s lawyer Farhana Shah said.
"`Hum appeal karenge` (I will appeal), Kasab told me," Shah added.
Shah, however, mentioned that she is yet to receive the copy of the order of the Bombay High Court.
"The process of filing an appeal in the Supreme Court can be started only after we receive an order copy," she said.
A division bench of the Bombay High Court comprising Justice Ranjana Desai and Justice RV More dismissed Kasab`s appeal challenging the death sentence given to him by Special Judge ML Tahaliyani in May 2010.
A total of 166 people were killed in the mayhem let loose by Kasab and nine other Pakistani gunmen during the 60-hour Mumbai terror attacks. While he was caught alive, the nine other terrorists were killed in gun battles with the security forces.
