Pune: Ajmal Amir Kasab, the lone surviving Pakistani terrorist of the 2008 Mumbai terror attacks, was hanged at Pune's Yerwada Jail Wednesday morning, a top official said.

"Yes, Kasab has been hanged this (Wednesday) morning at 7.30 a.m. in Yerawada Central Jail," Special Public Prosecutor Ujjwal Nikam, who led the 26/11 terror attacks case, told IANS.

Kasab's end came just five days before the fourth anniversary of the brutal terror attacks. The Nov 26−29, 2008 terror siege had claimed 166 lives.
