Profile: Ajmal Kasab, the face of Mumbai terror attack

Ajmal Kasab

Initial reports offered a conflicting view of Ajmal Kasab as fluent in English, and from a middle class background.

However, an interrogator and deputy commissioner of the Mumbai Police stated that he spoke rough Hindi and barely any English.

Kasab was found guilty of 80 offences, including waging war against the nation, which is punishable by the death penalty.

His death sentence was upheld by the Bombay High Court on February 21, 2011. The verdict was upheld by the Supreme Court of India on August 29 2012.
