The letter written by Kasab in jail has been sent to the Supreme Court.

166 people died in the Mumbai attacks on November 26, 2008, following which Ajmal Kasab and two Indian nationals were tried by a special court in Mumbai. Within a year, the special court gave Kasab death on five counts, while the accused Indians, Faheem Ansari and Sabahuddin Shaikh, were let off for lack of evidence.

His death penalty was confirmed the Bombay High Court on February 21, 2011.
