Mumbai: The prosecution sought death penalty for Pakistani gunman Ajmal Amir Kasab, convicted for 26/11 terror attacks, describing him as a killing machine manufactured in Pakistan who had total disregard for life.
Terming Kasab’s case as the rarest of rare, public prosecutor Ujjwal Nikam told the anti-terror court, “Such a monster should be given death penalty. He is an agent of devil himself.
“If Kasab is given lesser punishment, India will become a soft target for every self-styled terror group,” Nikam said in his arguments over quantum of sentence to the terrorist, a day after Special Judge M L Tahaliyani found him guilty of mass murder and waging war against India.
“There has been a high degree of cruelty and Kasab had total disregard for life. Kasab is a killing machine and such machines are manufactured in Pakistan,” he said.
