Hangman Mammu Singh says it is his wish to execute Pakistani gunman Mohammad Ajmal Kasab, who has been sentenced to death in the 26/11 case.

The 62-year-old hangman says he wants to hang Kasab in public view, if given permission.

Mammu ‘jallad', as he is popularly known, says hanging Kasab in public would send a message that enemies of the country will meet a similar fate.

Mammu hails from a family of hangmen. His grandfather Ram Rakha had executed Bhagat Singh during the British period. His father Kallu Singh, who was also involved in the same profession, hung notorious criminal duo Ranga and Billa in 1981, besides executing the killers of Indira Gandhi. Mammu has so far executed more than 12 convicts.
