NEW DELHI: Pakistan had been informed about the hanging of Ajmal Amir Kasab, the lone Pakistani terrorist caught in the 2008 Mumbai terror attack, Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde said Wednesday.

 

He told reporters that President Pranab Mukherjee had rejected Kasab's mercy petition.

 

"Pakistan has been informed but there is no demand for Kasab's body. The president rejected Kasab's mercy petition Nov 5. I had further forwarded it to the Maharashtra government Nov 8," Shinde told media persons.

 

Kasab, who was hanged at Pune's Yerawada Jail Wednesday morning, was amongst the alleged10 Pakistani terrorists who sneaked into Mumbai on the night of Nov 26, 2008. The Nov 26-29, 2008 terror siege had killed 166 people and injured 300.
