Meerut: Hangman Mammu Singh says that it
is his wish to execute Pakistani gunman Mohammad Ajmal Kasab,
who has been sentenced to death in the 26/11 case.

The 62-year-old hangman says he want to hang Kasab in
public view, if given permission.
"Mammu jallad", as he is popularly known as, says
hanging Kasab in public would send a strong message to the
world that enemies of the country will meet a similar fate.

Mammu hails from a family of hangmans. His grandfather
Ram Rakha had executed Bhagat Singh during the British period.

His father Kallu Singh, who was also involved in the same
profession, hung notorious criminal duo Ranga and Billa in
1981, besides executing killers of Indira Gandhi.
Mammu, who has so far executed more than 12
convicts, said he would feel proud in hanging Kasab in
Meerut jail where eight convicts are awaiting their turn for
the gallows.

Bombay High Court yesterday confirmed gallows to the
lone surviving Pakistani gunman in the 26/11 Mumbai terror
attack case.
