breaking news: Ajmal Amir Kasab appeals sentence: source

NEW DELHI: The lone surviving gunman from the 2008 Mumbai attacks that left 166 people dead has approached the Indian Supreme Court asking for his death sentence to be overturned, a court source told AFP Friday.

The source said the request by Mohammed Ajmal Amir Kasab had been filed via jail authorities in Mumbai, where he has been held since the attacks, and lodged with the secretary general of the court.

“He filed the appeal through the Arthur Road jail authorities,” the source said, asking not to be named.

Pakistani national Kasab was convicted and sentenced by a trial court in Mumbai and the death sentence was confirmed by the state high court.

India has the death sentence for the “rarest of the rare” criminal offences.
