Kasab challenges death penalty in Supreme Court
New Delhi: Ajmal Amir Kasab, the lone surviving gunman in the Mumbai 2008 terror attack, moved the Supreme Court challenging the death penalty awarded to him by a trial court and upheld by the Bombay High Court.

Kasab's appeal was filed by the authorities at the Arthur road jail in Mumbai where he has been lodged since he was arrested in 2008.

Kasab was convicted by the trial court for murder, conspiracy and waging a war against India and sentenced to death last year. The verdict was upheld by the high court this year.

A Pakistani national, Kasab was one of the 10 gunmen involved in the Mumbai terror attacks of November 2008 in which 166 people were killed.
