The only surviving gunman in the 2008 attacks on Mumbai that killed more than 160 people was sentenced to death by hanging on Thursday.
Mohammed Ajmal Kasab, a Pakistani, was convicted on Monday of murder, conspiracy, and waging war on India.
He was sentenced to death on five separate counts, and life imprisonment on five others.
On receiving the sentence, Kasab lowered his head. He was silent when the judge asked him if he wanted to say anything.
Kasab is the only man to have been sentenced in connection with the three-day siege in November 2008. During the raids, 10 men attacked buildings including the luxury Taj Mahal Palace and Tower and Oberoi-Trident hotels, the city’s Victoria Terminus train station, and the Jewish cultural center, Chabad House.
