NEW DEHLI: The Indian Supreme Court today reserved its order on Ajmal Kasab's plea challenging his conviction and death sentence in the 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks.
According to Indian media, a bench of justices Aftab Alam and C K Prasad reserved its verdict after a marathon hearing, spanning over two and a half month, of arguments by the prosecution and defence counsel.
During the argument, Kasab contended that he was not given a free and fair trial and that he was not the part of any larger conspiracy for waging war against the nation.
Kasab had also maintained that the prosecution had failed to prove the case against him beyond doubts and told the bench that his right against self-incrimination as well as his right to get himself adequately represented by a counsel to defend himself in the case had been violated during the trial.
He had filed the appeal from jail challenging his conviction and death sentence.
