Maharashtra Home Minister R.R. Patil said."All the legal procedures in the 26/11 terror attacks case were completed. He was sentenced by the trial court, which was upheld by the Bombay High Court, Supreme Court, and his mercy plea was rejected by the President.

Accordingly, Kasab has been hanged on Wednesday morning at 7.30 am in Yerawada Central Jail," Patil told mediapersons. Kasab's mercy petition was rejected by President Pranab Mukherjee on Tuesday night. Shortly thereafter, in the dead of the night, Kasab was shifted amid top secrecy and tight security to Pune's high security Yerawada jail and in the morning, at 7.30 am, he was hanged in the jail premises after which a team of doctors declared him dead.

"The External Affairs Ministry through our mission in Islamabad had informed the Pakistan government about Kasab's hanging. When they did not accept the letter, they were communicated through fax," Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde told reporters.

Shinde said so far no one has claimed the body of 25-year-old Kasab and if Pakistan claims it, India would give it to the neighbouring country.



"Better late than never. Kasab's hanging will act as a balm on the wounds of the people of Mumbai but their wounds are still fresh. They will get relief only when Kasab's handler's across the border are brought to justice," BJP spokesperson Shahnawaz Hussain said.


"It is victory for the country. By hanging Kasab, we have paid homage to all those policemen and innocent persons who lost their lives," special public prosecutor Ujjwal Nikam said.

    NOVEMBER 21, 2012: Ajmal Kasab was hanged in a hurry to propitiate the Shiv Sena just as the two girls were arrested for a Facebook post criticizing the Mumbai shut-down at Bal Thackeray's death to propitiate the Shiv Sena. During Thackeray's 1992 violence against Muslims that killed about a thousand, I wrote a letter to the press criticizing it at which Thackeray said something angry about "intellectuals" but stopped the violence. His bravery, like that of other Indians, was limited to fighting other non-white people while they continue to pay tributes to the British -- an example is in Ajay Shukla's defence blog of November 17 '12 -- who killed over ten million Indians -- by guns and sword, not famines -- in just the ten years after 1857. Citing benefits of refrigeration and supply chains to farmers from Foreign Direct Investment is like citing benefits from the railroads East India Company will build; can't do anything ourselves, though Indian companies are spending several tens of billions of dollars every year on buying Western companies which benefits India not at all by way of jobs or technology development and adds to the loot of India, depriving India of this investment. I repeat: India's population is a mountain of S-H-I-T. Bal Thackeray was a particle of S-H-I-T in this mountain of S-H-I-T. See IndiasTraitorGovtAndMediaDOTblogspotDOTcom

    The same two terrorists at Mumbai and Lahore .. Google .. this man was photographed at the terror attack in Lahore, against the Sri Lankan Cricket Team March 2009, and at the Mumbai attacks of November 2008! At Mumbai he had on a Hindu tilak which means he is no Moslem, other attackers stayed at Nariman House, a Jewish hostel in Mumbai which was itself bombed next day, the last phone call one Mumbai attacker made was to a Mossad agent in New York!
