List of people who signed Ajmal Kasab’s mercy petition

There were total 203 people who had filed mercy petition for 26/11 terrorist Ajmal Kasab to President Pranab Mukherjee, who rejected the mercy petition. In list of 203 people, some names are very shocking as example Harsh Mandar had also filed petition for Ajmal Kasab and he considered as the right hand of Sonia gandhi and he was also NAC (National Advisory council) member.  Sonia Gandhi served as its Chairperson for much of the tenure of the UPA. Aruna roy who was also a NAC member, had also signed the Kasab Mercy petition.

According to Indian Express Report, Mumbai-based lawyer Yug Chaudhry had written to the President on October 28, 212 and sought public support for his petition.

Yug Chaudhry stated in his letter to president, “This petition has been endorsed by 203 citizens of India. I would therefore request you on behalf of all those citizens who have endorsed this mercy petition to exercise your prerogative of mercy in favour of Md. Ajmal Kasab and commute his death sentence to one of life imprisonment.”

Professors of reputed educational institutes like London School and Economics, the Tata Institute of Social Sciences, School of African and Asian Studies, Delhi University and Jadavpur University, had signed this mercy petition too.
