Mumbai, Apr 28: The special court set up in Arthur Road jail will decide whether Ajmal Kasab aka Azam Amir Kasav, the lone surviving terrorist in the 26/11 case, is a juvenile or not on Tuesday, Apr 28.

The court had earlier ordered an investigation to find Kasav's true age on Apr 24 after his lawyer claimed that Kasab was just 17-year-old during Mumbai terror attack and so he should be tried in a juvenile court.

Special Judge ML Tahiliyani had asked for a report on Kasav's age by Apr 28. The court has asked a team of Doctors to conduct the necessary medical tests on Kasav i.e. an ossification test that will study his bones and a dental test to confirm the growth of his wisdom teeth.

The result of this probe is crucial, as it will decide if the trial continues at this special court or in a juvenile court. If moved to juvenile court the maximum punishment Kasav can get is three years imprisonment and he will escape death sentence.
