Today Ajmal Kasab was hanged at Yerwada Jail in Pune at 7:30am. Mohammed Ajmal Amir Kasab LeT terrorist and 26/11 attacks accused was hanged in the high-security Yerwada Jail in Pune at 7:30am today after a four-year-long trial. His mercy petition was rejected by the President earlier on November 5.
Home minister Sushil Shinde said: “Ajmal Kasab was hanged at 7:30am. It took the Maharashtra government less than two weeks to hang Kasab after President Pranab Mukherjee rejected his mercy petition on November 5. Two days later, Union Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde signed on the file. It was sent to the Maharashtra government on November 8 and November 21, today, was fixed as the date of execution.”
He also said: “Indian mission in Islamabad informs Pakistan government about Kasab’s hanging through letter. Pakistan refuses to take the letter, which was then faxed.”
The entire process was executed very secretly which needs to be thought about that why was it done in such a secret manner ?
