Mumbai Gunman Sentenced to Death
Posted on May 6, 2010
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.
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.
