Mumbai, Feb 7 (ANI): The Bombay High Court will on Monday decide the fate of Ajmal Kasab, the lone surviving terrorist of the 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks.

It is expected that the High Court will announce the final date of its judgment to confirm the death penalty to Kasab.

Apart from Kasab, the court will also pronounce the verdict on Faheem Ansari and Sabahuddin Shaikh. Ansari and Shaikh are Indian accused in the case, who were acquitted by the special court.

The state government had challenged the acquittal of both Indian accused in the High Court.

A Mumbai Special Court on May 6, 2010 sentenced Kasab to death on four counts.

Judge M L Tahaliyani awarded the death sentence for Kasab on-waging war against India, murder, conspiracy to murder, and participating in an act of terror under Unlawful Activity Prevention Act (UAPA).

Kasab, who is the 52nd prisoner on death row in India, was also awarded a life term on five other counts. (ANI)
