Did Ajmal Kasab die of dengue? tweeple ask
Ajmal Kasab has finally been executed, as per the Union Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde, but some people have raised doubts while claiming that the terrorist might have died of dengue. Micro-blogging site Twitter with abuzz with sarcasm, excitement and relief, let us take a look.

IT WAS a pleasant morning shock to many Indians when they heard Ajmal Kasab – the lone terrorist captured during the 2008 Mumbai attacks has been executed in Pune's Yerawada jail. But the secrecy maintained by the government regarding the whole opeartion has given birth to conspiracy theories that Kasab died of dengue and to claim credit, government played the 'hanging drama'.

Arming conspiracy theorists with more reasons, it is being reported that president had rejected Kasab's mercy petition on November 5 and home ministry had given the final nod for execution on November 7. People are asking as to why government didn't make this information public and rightly so, when we know that even top secrets of the country are leaked to media.

It has been widely reported in media that Kasab suffered from high fever and doctors hadn't ruled out dengue. And tweeple have taken to their favourite platform, Twitter to vent out their thoughts and reactions.

Ashwinravindran, using the Twitter handle @ashsensitak tweeted, “Government claiming #kasab hanged till death but some sources saying he is (sic) died by (sic) fever.”

There were some tweets that even compared Kasab's hanging to the death of Osama Bin Laden. A user with handle @NigelBritto tweeted, “Has anyone actually seen #Kasab's body, or is this hanging like Obama throwing Osama bin Laden's ashes into the ocean?”

In the backdrop of recent arrest of two women for questioning Mumbai shutdown on Facebook, many Twitter users were seen posting sarcastic messages on the arrest of women and Kasab's hanging. A user tweeted: “I wonder if #Kasab died by Hanging or He died of food poisoning after having Kavva Biryani for free.. #JUST SAYIN, DONT ARREST ME!!”

Another user with handle @chyprashant tweeted, “Rumors are that #Kasab was about (to) die because of DENGUE. Government of India hanged him to take credit away from mosquitoes.”
