26/11: Kasab files appeal against death penalty

Ajmal Kasab
Mumbai, Sep 29: The Pakistani terrorist Ajmal Amir Kasab, who sentenced to death penalty in 26/11 Mumbai terror attack, has filed an appeal in Bombay High Court challenging his death penalty in the case on Tuesday, Sep 28.

The appeal filed by Kasab accused that there were lapses in evidence produced by police in the trial court and the punishment imposed on him was harsh. The appeal also challenged identification of Kasab in the court saying the eye witnesses had easily identified him because his photograph had appeared prominently in newspapers and television on the day of attack.

The appeal would be heard by the Bombay HC as it decided to hear concerns in the confirmation of death sentence imposed on him on a day-to-day basis from Oct 18. Kasab will be appearing in the court through a video conference link.
