Maharashtra Government may seek permission of the Bombay High Court to produce convicted terrorist Ajmal Kasab through video link when confirmation of his death sentence in the 26/11 terror attack case comes up for hearing on a day-to-day basis in September.

The court proceedings are expected to last for three months and producing Kasab before the High Court every day amid tight security will be an uphill task for the administration, official sources said in Mumbai on Sunday.

The authorities will have to take utmost precaution in bringing Kasab from Central prison at Arthur Road in Mumbai to the High Court in south Mumbai every day by deploying several policemen enroute and also to escort him, they added.

"We may approach the High Court at an appropriate time for video conference facility to ensure presence of Kasab during the proceedings," Government Counsel Ujjwal Nikam told the news agency.
