Prime accused in terror attack of 26th November’2008 at Mumbai, Ajmal Kasab, has since been hanged to death at Yervada Jail in Pune. Justice, though delayed, has thus ultimately prevailed The killer who perpetrated the cruel act of shooting down a large number of people, including women and children, mercilessly at Mumbai had filed a petition before the President of India seeking his pardon against the death penalty already awarded to him by the Court. This petition was rejected by the President. Refer earlier post on the subject as given below:
There yet several others with their mercy petitions pending with the President of India, mainly including that of Mohd. Afzal Guru, a death row convict in terror attack on Parliament of India in December’2001. As a death row convict, Afzal Guru’s case is older than that of Kasab’s, and there is a suspicion lurking in the minds of the people as to why only Kasab was isolated for execution solitarily allowing him (Afzal Guru) and others to survive and continue their manoeuvrings against the interest of India. Justice demands a peremptorily implemented action like it is done in the case of Ajmal Kasab.
