A higher court in Mumbai Monday reserved till the first week of next month its judgment on an appeal by Mohammed Ajmal Amir Kasab, the only Pakistani militant caught alive in the Mumbai terror attacks, against his death sentence, sources said.

"A division bench of Bombay High Court reserved its judgment till Feb. 7 on Kasab's plea against his death sentence given to him by a special court for his role in the Mumbai terror attacks, in which over 170 people were killed in November 2008," the sources said.

The Indian special court on May 3, 2010, had convicted Kasab of murder, waging war on India, possessing explosives, and other charges, and three days later sentenced him to death on four counts and to a life sentence on five other counts.
