MUMBAI: The confirmation of the verdict of the death sentence for the lone surviving gunman of the 26/11 attacks, Ajmal Kasab, has been deferred after the Bombay High Court adjourned the hearing to August 12.
Kasab was not present at the hearing due to security reasons.
The public prosecutor announced that the state would file an appeal against the acquittal of two other accused Faheem Ansari and Sabauddin Shaikh within a week, after which the hearing was adjourned.
Kasab's state-appointed lawyer, Farhana Shah has sought two months time to file an appeal on behalf of Kasab.
Shah said the judgment runs into 16,000 pages and they would require time before an appeal is filed.
