The mercy plea filed by Pakistani terrorist Mohammed Ajmal Amir Kasab has been rejected by President Pranab Mukherjee.


The Lashkar-e-Toiba terrorist sentenced to death for the November 26 2008 terror attack on Mumbai.

According to The Indian Express, the decision to reject Kasab's petition was taken on the advice of the Union Home Ministry. A source told the newspaper that all the papers have been signed.

President’s decision comes nearly two months after the Maharashtra home department rejected Kasab’s mercy petition that had been addressed to the President.

 
The authorities shifted Kasab from Mumbai's Arthur Road jail to Pune's Yerwada jail where he was hanged till death on Wednesday morning around 7:36 am.

 

The 1993 Mumbai serial bomb blasts convicts are also been lodged at Yerwada.

Ministry of Home Affairs released the death warrant of Kasab on Wednesday.
 

The nearly four-year legal battle launched by the 25-year-old had ended on August 29 when the Supreme Court upheld his conviction and death sentence in the 26/11 attacks case, saying he killed without "the slightest twinge of conscience."
 

Kasab was one of 10 Pakistani terrorists who attacked on Mumbai and killed around 165 people and injured many.
