Rights and privileges that Kasab has in jail

mumbai Updated: May 09, 2010 14:03 IST

Pants without cord, woollen blankets, pot, plate and aluminium mug are some of the articles that convicted Pakistani terrorist Ajmal Kasab is entitled to under the provision of Prison rules.

After an accused is convicted, he is entitled to certain facilities under the Prisons (prisoners sentenced to death) Rules 1971, according to lawyer Sayaji Nangre.

Since Kasab has been convicted in the 26/11 terror attack case, he too shall be entitled to such facilities prescribed under the Prison Rules, he said.

Kasab may be permitted to have interviews with his relatives, friends and lawyers if the Superintendent of Prison is of the opinion that such permission may be granted to him. So far, none of his relatives or friends have contacted him.

The Superintendent has the discretion to allow Kasab read religious books, keep religious pictures, rosary and essential emblems, subject to security checks.
