Mumbai terror attacker buried inside prison where he's hanged


08:59, November 22, 2012

NEW DELHI, Nov. 21 (Xinhua) -- Mohammed Ajmal Amir Kasab, the only Pakistani militant caught alive in Mumbai terror attacks, has been buried inside the western Indian city of Pune's high-security Yerwada jail where he was executed Wednesday, the Indian authorities said.

"At 7.30 a.m. (local time) Ajmal Kasab was hanged in the Yerwada Jail. The Pakistani terrorist was buried inside the same prison at 9.30 a.m.," Prithviraj Chavan, the Chief Minister of the western state of Maharashtra, told the media in state capital Mumbai.

Earlier this morning, Indian Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde said Pakistan was informed of the hanging, but there has been no response from the neighboring country. "If there is a request for Kasab's body, we would have obliged, but there was no such request, " he said in the national capital.

India had buried Kasab's nine associates as Pakistan did not seek custody of their bodies. All the 10 Pakistani militants had carried out the Mumbai terror attacks in November 2008, in which over 170 people were killed and more than 300 others injured.

Kasab, who was sentenced to death by an Indian special court in 2010, was hanged after Indian President Pranab Mukherjee rejected his mercy petition earlier this month, barely three months after the country's Supreme Court upheld his death penalty confirmed by the High Court in Mumbai.
