Ajmal Kasab was buried inside the premises of Pune's Yerawada Central Jail shortly after he was hanged, Maharashtra Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan said Wednesday.

 

Kasab, the sole surviving Pakistani terrorist caught in the 26/11 attack, was hanged at 7.30 a.m. Wednesday, four years after the terror siege that killed 166 people.

Chavan said Kasab had been shifted from Mumbai to Pune two days ago.

Kasab did not leave behind any will, the chief minister told journalists, adding that he had been buried in the jail premises on the outskirts of Pune.

The hanging was set rolling after President Pranab Mukherjee rejected Kasab's mercy plea Nov 5 and the file was sent back to Maharashtra government three days later.
