The memory of the fidgety and mentally distracted Indian classmate, biting his nails furiously, who could not sleep for the whole night after watching the live coverage of the attacks in Mumbai on November 26, 2008 flashes back to my mind whenever anybody mentions attacks.

Indeed, it was a tragic as well as ghoulish event; the sights of the killings, the shootings, the hostage-taking and the lamentations of victims’ relatives were seen and heard for three days on satellite TV, which aired grisly images all over the world.

On that fateful day, Mumbai was attacked by ten men; nine perpetrators of that attack were killed during the 60 hour siege which began on the night of November 26, 2008.

Ajmal Kasab was the lone terrorist captured alive.

Yesterday, that sole surviving gunman of 2008 attacks was hanged at Yerwada Central Jail, Pune, Maharashtra.

Salman Khurshid , External Affairs minister of India, said India did not get any request from Pakistan, either from the government or the relatives, for handing over the body of Kasab. Thus, he was buried inside the premises of the jail.

As a Pakistani, I can say that we were pained by the Mumbai attacks, but were, equally, intrigued by the perpetrators of the attacks. Who were the attackers? What were their motivations? How did they end up in Mumbai?

The chilling images of Kasab, dressed in smart sports gear, holding a bulky, blue bag pack, firing gunshots in the railway station, were recorded on the closed circuit TV cameras.

After his capture, his interrogators as well as the media constructed his identity, training and probable motivations.
