The 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks accused Ajamal Kasab on Friday moved the Supreme Court challenging the Mumbai high court order awarding him death sentence for his crime.

According to reports, the request by Mohammed Ajmal Amir Kasab had been filed via jail authorities in Mumbai, where he has been held since the attacks, and lodged with the secretary general of the court.

Kasab was convicted by the Bombay high court for murder, conspiracy and waging war against the country, and was sentenced to death. He has been lodged in the Arthur Road prison since 2008.

According to reports, Kasab had recently gone into a shell and stopped interacting with anyone. Kasab is not allowed to meet other inmates. He isn't allowed to read newspapers, or even step out of his cell. Previously, Kasab was quite conversational and would keep the security guards outside his cell busy with his questions.
