Mumbai, May 6: The 26/11 terrorist, Ajmal Amir Kasab has been awarded death sentence for murdering about 166 Indians and waging war against the nation.
Giving the final verdict in the Mumbai terror attacks case, the Additional Sessions court Judge ML Tahaliyani on Thursday, May 6 said that 22-year-old Kasab will be hanged by neck to death.
Kasab was handed death on four counts, which include charges such as murder and waging war against the nation, and life sentence on five counts.
The court reportedly observed that it sees no possibility of Kasab reforming even if he was given a chance.
As per inputs, the Pakistani terrorist broke down in court on hearing the sentence. The judge reportedly gave him some time to come to terms with the verdict.
This judgment of the Special Court can be challenged in High Court and in Supreme Court, if Kasab wants.
Besides this, the High Court will also be reviewing the Special Court's proceedings and the death sentence, only after which the execution of the terrorist will be confirmed.
