One day has passed since the Supreme Court upheld Ajmal Kasab’s death sentence, jailed Pakistani terrorist is still unaware of Supreme Court decision prison official said on Thursday.
“We think it is not advisable to communicate the Supreme Court verdict to Kasab yet. We have not received the hard copy of the judgment papers and hence the decision,” A.C. Rane, superintendent of high-security Arthur Road Jail here, said.
He also said the decision was served to Ajmal Kasab in an appropriate manner by the jail authorities.
He said “As jail officials, it is our responsibility to serve him the verdict and tell him about his fate. What is the point in telling him now when we don’t even have the copy of the verdict?”
