Mumbai, Aug 2: The petition to confirm the capital punishment for Ajmal Kasab, the lone surviving terrorist of the 26/11 attack will be presented before the Bombay High Court, on Monday, Aug 2.

Earlier, Kasab has filed an appeal in the Bombay High Court challenging the verdict and sought a legal aid panel to fight his case.

It has been reported that Kasab filed the appeal through the jail authorities and his plea for a lawyer has been forwarded to the High Court Legal Services Committee (HCLSC).

Earlier on May 6, Kasab's defence lawyer K P Pawar said the decision about appealing to the High Court against the death sentence would be taken after consultations with the convict.

Judge M L Tahiliyani awarded 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).
