Mohammed Ajmal Kasab is the lone survivor out of 10 gunmen who killed 166 people in the three-day rampage.

Prosecutors said he and an accomplice killed 58 people and wounded 104 others at one of Mumbai's busiest railway stations.

Judge ML Tahiliyani acquitted two Indians who had been accused of helping plot the attacks.
