Kasab not worried while shifted to Pune

The officials of the city-based Arthur Road Jail, where the 26/11 terror convict Ajmal Kasab was languishing before he was executed at Yerawada Jail in Pune, today said during his last 24 hours here he showed neither remorse nor worry while being shifted to Pune.

Soon after his clemency petition was rejected, a warrant to the effect was furnished to the Arthur Road Central Jail, where Kasab was lodged under maximum security for the past four years.

"We entered his cell and told him to stand up, which he did. Never been one to stand up at the entry of a senior official, his manner was neither respectful nor disrespectful on Sunday night," they said.

He was first told he was being shifted to a jail in Pune, to which he laughed. He might have realised he had exhausted all his options and that death was finally coming, said an officer involved with Kasab's transport to Pune.
