President Pranab Mukherjee has rejected the mercy plea of 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks convict Ajmal Kasab. The President's press secretary confirmed the reports saying the decision had been communicated to the Ministry of Home Affairs.
In September, the MHA had recommended that the mercy plea be rejected. Kasab had been sentenced to death in May 2010 for his role in the savage attacks that ripped apart Mumbai on 26 November 2008, killing over 150 people, including several foreigners.
Meanwhile, reports add that Kasab has been shifted out of Mumbai's Arthur Road jail to Pune's Yerwada Jail that is meant for convicts.
