Calling Indian officials' claim of hanging Kasab a mere "eyewash", many people claimed that he died of dengue. Hence, concealing the real facts, Indian authorities did not delay to bury him inside Yerwada jail premises.
Aam-aadmi (common man) of the nation took the platform of micro-blogging site Twitter to raise their questions. Here are few tweets from different persons:
Question: Kasab was reported to be suffering with Dengue . Does the Indian law allow sick to be hanged ? || #Kasab || What is the catch ?
Question - Curious! Did #Kasab die of dengue? Is govt's hasty action a cover up? @sardesairajdeep shd invite d Mosquito on India at 9 & find out!
Question - "@rajesh2tweet: @rohitroy500 Kasab might hv died on Dengue....Govt claiming he is hanged." No wayyyy! Are u serious???
Question - Ajmal Kasab had dengue few weeks before. Govt really hanged him or he died because of dengue ? #MillionDollarQuestion
Question - Frankly, I don't care if the government informed or not. Don't care if it was dengue or rope. #Kasab is gone. So many chicken & goats saved!
Question - This: MT @jemin_p: Could b kasab died of dengue n UPA claiming it as hanging in ultra fast manner. No news of pranabda rejecting mercy plea
Question - Was Kasab really hanged or did he die of dengue!!
Question - Did Kasab die of dengue? Timing of the news seems strategic to me. Or its just my myth only?
According to Union Home Minister SushilKumar Shinde and Maharashtra Home Minister RR Patil, Kasab was hanged at 7:30 am and was buried within hours. Recently, media reports claimed that Kasab was diagnosed with dengue. However, later doctors confirmed that he had suffered from normal fever and not from dengue or malaria.
Citing the secrecy maintained in the entire execution process, many asked - why Indian authority did not reveal any picture of Kasab's body?
