NEW DELHI: Mumbai terror attack convict Ajmal Kasab has challenged his conviction and death sentence in the Supreme Court, which has asked for trial court records.
"The Supreme Court received a petition from Kasab through Mumbai's Arthur Road Jail authorities two months back and the registry has asked for the trial court records from the special judge," apex court sources said.
The Bombay High Court had on February 21 upheld the trial court's order convicting Kasab as well as its order for acquittal of alleged Indian co-conspirators Faheem Ansari and Sabauddin Ahmed.
