The story of how Kasab became a terrorist

The sole surviving gunman of the Mumbai terror attack, Ajmal Amir Kasab was hanged in a Pune's Yerawada Central Jail at 7.30 am today. The chilling images of Kasab's killing spree, captured by close-circuit TVs installed at Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus in Mumbai were rekindled, as Maharashtra Home Minister R.R. Patil announced the execution, carried out in complete secrecy. Kasab's end came five days before the fourth anniversary of the brutal terror attacks that claimed 166 lives and injured 300 people. Kasab -- who was barely 21 when he carried out the brutal attack -- was sentenced to death on four counts and to life sentence on five counts on charges including murder, waging a war on India and possessing weapons. Here the story behind Kasab's heinous act of terror:

  • Until then, the now 25-year-old Kasab -- who was hanged in Pune Wednesday for his role in the 2008 Mumbai terror attack -- led a simple life in an impoverished part of Pakistan's Punjab province.

  • He belonged to a poor family. His father was a food vendor while a brother was a labourer in Lahore. It was in 2005 that Kasab decided to quit home after quarrelling with his father who could not provide him new clothes because of poverty.
