India executed the lone surviving gunman from the 2008 terror attack on Mumbai early today, the country’s home ministry said.
Mohammed Ajmal Kasab, a Pakistani citizen, was one of 10 gunmen who rampaged through the streets of India’s financial capital for three days in November 2008, killing 166 people.
Kasab was hanged in secrecy at 7:30 a.m. today at a jail in Pune, a city near Mumbai, after Indian President Pranab Mukherjee rejected his plea for mercy.

Union Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde said the home ministry sent Kasab’s mercy plea to Mukherjee on October 16.
Mukherjee rejected it on November 5, he said.
‘It was decided then that on 21st November at 7:30 in the morning he would be hanged. That procedure has been completed today,’ Shinde said.
R.R. Patil, the home minister for the state of Maharashtra, where Mumbai is located, called the execution a tribute to ‘all innocent people and police officers who lost their lives in this heinous attack on our nation.’
Indian authorities faced public pressure to quickly execute Kasab, and the government fast-tracked the appeal and execution process, which often can take years, or in some cases, decades.
