Kasab had also offered prayers and asked if his family was informed in advance about the hanging to which jail authorities replied in the affirmative, the official said.
Nearly four years after the Mumbai terror attack, Kasab, the sole surviving Pakistani terrorist, was hanged on Wednesday morning at Yerawada central prison in Pune in a top secret operation.
Ten terrorists belonging to Pakistan-based terror outfit Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) had come to Mumbai and carried out the dastardly strikes in which 166 people were killed. Nine of them were killed during the 60-hour siege which began on the night of November 26, 2008. Kasab was, however, caught alive.
