Ajmal Kasab, who was on Thursday awarded death sentence on five counts in the 26/11 terror attack case, broke down after hearing the sentence.

As special judge M L Tahilyani was reading out the sentence, Kasab was seen sobbing. He asked for a glass of water during the pronouncement.

After the sentence was read out, the Judge explained it to him in Hindi that he had been given death penalty on five counts and whether he wanted to say anything.

But the Pakistani gunman simply shook his head after which he was taken away by the police back to jail.
