Indian police are calling for the lone surviving suspect from November's terrorist attack on Mumbai to be put to death.
state Home Minister Jayant Patil says the death sentence is justified
because of the rare and heinous nature of the crime.
national Mohammed Ajmal Kasab has been charged with "waging war" on
India for the three-day assault that left more than 170 people dead.
also accuses Kasab of links to the Pakistan-based militant group
Lashkar-e-Taiba, inflaming tensions between India and Pakistan.
Press Trust of India reports Indian Home Minister Palaniappan
Chidambaram is accusing Islamabad of failing to pursue the
investigation, and of hampering the efforts of U.S. investigators from
the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation.
Chidambaram and U.S.
intelligence chief Leon Panetta discussed the Mumbai attacks earlier
this week, when the director of the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency
traveled to New Delhi.
