Kasab withdraws into shell after Bombay HC verdict

Mumbai: A day after the Bombay High Court
confirmed the death sentence to Ajmal Kasab in the 26/11
terror attack case, the Pakistani terrorist has withdrawn into
a shell and does not talk to any guards in Arthur Road Jail
here, prison sources said on Tuesday.

After hearing the verdict in the video conference room of
the prison, Kasab returned to his cell and did not show any
signs of being tense or feeling dejected. He did not talk to
anyone and slept well after having dinner, the sources said.

In keeping with daily rituals, Kasab offered `Namaz`
before going to bed.

In the past, Kasab has complained to the trial court as
well as the High Court about being kept in solitary
confinement and expressed his desire to hear the proceedings
by appearing in person. However, his plea has been rejected a
couple of times.

Kasab`s lawyer Farhana Shah said she would meet him in a
day or two in jail to inform about the details of the verdict
and seek his instructions on filing appeal in the Supreme
Court.

A division bench had yesterday confirmed the death
sentence awarded to Kasab by the trial court. The court held
him guilty of multiple murders, criminal conspiracy and waging
war against the nation.

The court had also dismissed Kasab`s appeal against
conviction and death sentence, saying the offences committed
by him fell in the "rarest of the rare" category and not
giving him death would send wrong signals as the crime
committed by him was very serious.
