The man who ruthlessly executed several people on the night of November 26, 2008, the worst terrorist attack witnessed by the city, today shudders at the thought of his own fate which will be decided by the Bombay high court on February 21.
A division bench of justice Ranjana Desai and justice RV More is likely to pronounce the verdict in the confirmation of Pakistani terrorist, Mohammad Ajmal Amir Kasab, who was sent to the gallows by the special court last year.
Farhana Shah, advocate for Kasab, who went to meet him at the high security cell at the Arthur Road Central Prison said that he (Kasab) seemed extremely upset. Shah said, “He is totally upset and worried about the Monday’s verdict.”
Shah who met him for just five minutes on Saturday said Kasab barely looked at her during their conversation.
“Normally, he looks at me when I go to meet him for the case. But today he didn’t make eye contact. He just kept looking at the ground the whole time,” Shah said.
Kasab will not be produced personally in the court when the verdict will be pronounced but will be made to attend the hearing through the video conferencing facility.
Kasab who had stopped coming before the camera after the initial few days when the hearings in the appeal began, said that he would come before the camera on February 21.
“When I told him that the judgment was scheduled on Monday, he seemed more upset. But, he has said he would come before the camera to hear the verdict,” Shah said.
