Washington, May 12: United States on Wednesday, May 12 said that Ajmal Amir Kasab's sentencing was a result of a fair and transparent judicial process of India.
"This (trial of Kasab) was part of an Indian legal proceeding. Obviously, we have encouraged India and at times, in the aftermath, we have assisted India with the investigation, but this was the result of an Indian fair and transparent legal process," said Assistant Secretary of State for Public Affairs P.J. Crowley.
"We have extensive cooperation with India on counterterrorism and that will certainly continue," Crowley said in response to a question at his daily press briefing yesterday.
Kasab, the lone surviving terrorist of the 2008 Mumbai terror attack, was awarded a death sentence by the Mumbai special court on May 6.
