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.
