Qasab, the only terrorist caught alive during the 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks in 2008, had pleaded the Supreme Court to commute his death sentence to life imprisonment on February 14.
A trial court had sentenced the 24-year-old to death on May 6, 2010, an order which was later upheld by the Bombay High Court on October 10 last year.
Senior advocate Raju Ramachandran, who had been appointed amicus curiae by the Supreme Court to defend Qasab, had told the bench that he was not a part of the larger conspiracy for waging war against the nation.
However, on behalf of the Maharashtra government, Gopal Subramanium had argued that Qasab should be hanged as he was a part of a conspiracy to wage war against India.
