Crime seen: An armed Mohammed Ajmal Kasab is shown walking into Mumbai’s Chatrapathi Sivaji Terminal railway station on Nov. 26, 2008.

He is the sole surviving suspect from the November 2008 terrorist attacks in Mumbai, and on Thursday, 22-year-old Mohammed Ajmal Amir Kasab was sentenced to death by an Indian judge.

The Telegraph:

Mohammed Ajmal Amir Kasab, a 22-year-old Pakistani, was convicted on Monday of 86 charges, including waging war against India, murder and terrorism offences.

Judge M.L. Tahaliyani said the man described by prosecutors as a “killing machine” should be hanged.

Kasab and an accomplice committed the bloodiest episode of the three-day assault on India’s financial capital by killing 52 people at the city’s main railway station and 20 more as they fled, including several senior police officers.
