Ajmal Kasab's hanging will cost Maharashtra govt only Rs 50
Not so fast! He is going to file a mercy petition to convert death penalty to life sentence and the file is going to get moved around Home Ministry and don't know how many departments and then lie listlessly under the heap of other such files in President's office.
It is going to take a very loooong time before such thing happens.
Afzal Guru's death sentance was pronounced in 2004 and he is alive and kicking, let us see if Kasab will be punished or not.
^^ Afzal Guru is an Indian terrorist while Kasab is a Pakistani terrorist, Afzal can not be hanged so easily because Congress's vote bank has sympathy with him . Otoh I do not expect such long delays for Kasab.
So there are chances that Kasab will be fasttracked over Afzal Guru?? That would be wrong!
Why would it be wrong? I will tell you, congress will ensure he is hung to death. It will be an important platform to fight elections. Just like Obama will use OBL bogey, congress will use AK bogey. Also 1 less pakistani is good for India.
Maybe they can give a discount price for both.
both afzal and kasab case will be same and when they attain natural death ,the cost to maintain them would have reached some 1000crores
After the SC has decided the case, strictly legally, he can be hanged within onw week. No need to wait for mercy petition.
It cost Rs 50 to hang him and Rs 53 crore to keep him alive.
The man who cheapened life deserved a cheap death.
