The records at Bidhoona tehsil in Uttar Pradesh’s Auraiya district made a shocking revelation after it was found that Ajmal Kasab – the 26/11 Mumbai terror attack convict who was hanged in 2012 – has been issued a domicile certificate, according to a Times of India report.
After preliminary investigation, the district authorities cancelled the domicile certificate and suspended the concerned lekhpal while ordering a probe into the serious lapse.
Times of India cited DSM Bidhoona Pravendra Kumar confirming that a domicile certificate has been issued against a submission of fake documents by some unidentified person.
Some 166 people were killed in the attack carried out by 10 Pakistan-based LeT terrorists. Nine of the attackers were killed by police while lone survivor Ajmal Kasab was caught and hanged at Pune’s Yerwada Jail on November 21, 2012 after handed down death sentence.
