Kasab charged in Mumbai terror attacks

Per CNN, Ajmal Kasab, the sole survivor of the November 26 Mumbai terrorist attacks has been formally charged with attempted murder and damage to public property. Kasab was one of 10 accused in participating in the deadly attacks.

Twitter users have much to say about Kasab's 11,000-page charge sheet, including being charged with violating railway laws, according to CNN.

@prashantkr (Bangalore, India): @gomad - task of reading 11k page charge sheet feels like punishment. Kasab should be asked to read it once.

@asiftherock (India): This is ridiculous- Kasab booked for entering CST station without ticket http://tinyurl.com/ckanut

@akhileshss (Bangalore, India): @gomad Probably no-ticket pt is what will prevent Kasab from escaping the clutches of the law... Like fake passport case caught Abu Salem.

@aojha: Kasab even booked for entering CST without ticket: Investigators in the Mumbai terror attack are leaving nothing.. http://tinyurl.com/an45c6

Some are concerned whether or not Kasab will get a fair trial.

@aritra_m (Kolkata, India): @TechExclusive i believe that he should. Kasab will get his due. but i am concerned about how our politicians will use this 2 target people.

@magneda2: Gn Terror: India is a fair state, even Kasab deserves trial - IBNLive.com: India is a fair state, even.. http://tinyurl.com/akf7mz

@mayankchandak: CJI says Kasab should get lawyer for 'fair trial': Several lawyer bodies have refused to take up Ajmal's case.
