Maha govt to decide soon on shifting Kasab to another jail

Earlier, a proposal of shifting Kasab to Yerwada jail in Pune was under consideration. But since his case was pending before High Court, no final decision was taken on the proposal.



Mumbai: The Maharashtra government will soon
take a decision on whether to shift Pakistani terrorist Ajmal
Kasab from Arthur jail to some other prison after his death
sentence was upheld by the Bombay High Court on Monday.

"We have not yet decided over shifting Kasab to some
other jail. I will soon discuss the issue with officials of
the Home Department", Home Minister RR Patil said.

"Kasab is provided high security at the Arthur Road jail.
Proper arrangements would have to be in place prior to his
shifting", an official from the Home Department said.

Earlier, a proposal of shifting Kasab to Yerwada jail in
Pune was under consideration. But since his case was pending
before High Court, no final decision was taken on the
proposal.

The Pakistani gunman is lodged in solitary confinement in
an egg-shaped cell at the high security Arthur Road jail in
the central part of city.

Only the under trials are kept in Arthur Road jails.
