MUMBAI (Agencies) - Two Indian judges on Monday rejected the appeal of the sole surviving gunman from the 2008 Mumbai attacks against his conviction and death sentence. The judges at the Bombay High Court dismissed the appeal by Mohammed Ajmal Amir Kasab over his role in the attacks that killed 166 and injured more than 300 people. The court also threw out the states appeal against a lower courts decision to acquit two Indian nationals who were accused of providing hand-drawn maps to the 10 gunmen. Kasab has been held in solitary confinement since his arrest in a shootout with police just hours after the attacks began. He has not attended the appeal for security reasons but has been able to follow proceedings via video link.The 23-year-old looked at the floor as the judgement - widely expected given the weight of fingerprint, DNA, eye-witness and CCTV evidence against him - was handed down, news channel NDTV said.
