Indian court convicted Mumbai terror suspect
Clay Flaherty at 12:00 AM ET

On May 3, 2010, an Indian court convicted Mohammad Ajmal Amir Kasab of murder and waging war against India for his role in the November 2008 Mumbai terrorist attacks that killed 166. The trial took many controversial turns, including claims from Kasab that he had been tortured by police and the denial of a request for an international trial. Kasab, the lone gunman to survive the three-day siege of Mumbai, was sentenced to death following his conviction. He appealed to the Bombay High Court, which upheld the determinations of the lower court.
