Tehran:  With the Indian Supreme Court upholding the death sentence on the Pakistani terrorist Ajmal Kasab, India's case for action against others involved in the Mumbai terror attacks got strengthened ahead of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh's meeting with President Asif Ali Zardari on Thursday.   

The two leaders will confabulate on the sidelines of the Non-Aligned Movement Summit here shortly after Zardari flies across from Islamabad. The scheduling problems for their second meeting since the Pakistani leader came to Delhi in April, have been resolved and they will meet at 7 pm IST.  
Terror remains high on the agenda and India's continuing concerns over lack of action against those in Pakistan believed to have been actively involved in 2008 Mumbai attacks will be flagged by Singh. External Affairs Minister S M Krishna, who is also here for the NAM meeting, lost no time in drawing attention of the Apex Court's verdict on Kasab.   

"I am sure Pakistan will not fail to take note of it," Krishna said and quickly added that the Pakistani judiciary is also proactive.

"The Supreme Court is the highest court of appeal in India and when it announces something it becomes law of the land. Other things will follow," he said. Indian officials pointed out that India had convicted some of those involved in the Mumbai attacks through the same set of evidence which was provided to Islamabad in a trial which was not a "show trial".
