Mumbai blasts a birthday gift for Kasab

Mumbai: Were today`s synchronised blasts here a birthday gift for 26/11 terror attack convict Ajmal Kasab?

Born on July 13, 1987 in Pakistan, Kasab was one of the ten terrorists who carried out the three-day long attacks on the metropolis which began on the evening of November 26, 2008 and left 166 people dead.

Three blasts rocked the busy markets of Dadar, Zaveri Bazaar and Opera House today, which also happens to be Kasab`s 24th Birthday.

Dressed in a cargo and black T-shirt, Kasab unleashed a rein of terror at Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus railway station and Cama Hospital by opening fire from his automatic assault rifle.

The only attacker left alive after the carnage, Kasab has been languishing in Arthur Road prison here and was awarded death sentence by a trial court which was upheld by the Bombay High Court.
