The Bombay High Court today reserved its order till February 7 on delivering final verdict on the state government's plea of confirmation of the death penalty awarded to Pakistani terrorist Ajmal Kasab for his role in the 26/11 terror strikes.
A Division bench consisting of Justices Ranjan Desai and R V More announced the date after the defence and prosecution both had concluded their arguments last week.
Besides hearing the confirmation of death sentence awarded by the trial court to Kasab, the court was also hearing Kasab's plea challenging the sentence and urging to convert death sentence to life.
The state had also filed an appeal against acquittal of Fahim Ansari and Sabauddin Ahmed, who were charged with preparing maps of targets and passing them to the terrorist outfit Lashkar-e-Toiba, which in turn handed them over to terrorists to carry out the strikes in Mumbai.
On February 7, the court will begin its process on delivering final verdict on Kasab, Fahim Ansari and Sabavddin Ahmed.
