An utmost secrecy was maintained prior to the Operation Neptune Spear that killed Osama bin Laden in his hideout in Pakistan.
Operation Neptune star was carried out without informing Pakistan on whose soil the entire operation took place. It is considered as one of the most covert operation carried out by America. Till this date, a lot of facts are still unclear about the method in which the operation was executed.
A similar sort of covert operation was put in place for the execution of 'Operation X'. The order to execute Kasab was given on 12th November. The execution orders were kept under wrap for almost ten days, a very unlikely scenario for a country filled with news hungry media and outspoken politicians. He was shifted from Mumbai to Pune a day before his hanging. The secrecy surrounding the entire operation was not out, even after the news of his shifting got leaked to the media.
Mumbai police kept the entire operation under wrap till the last hour. From the news of shifting to his last wish remained hidden from the prying eyes of media.

Post death information kept classified
Information of dead bodies of both the terrorist is not revealed to the public. Osama bin Laden was buried in the sea, while Ajmal Amir Kasab was buried in Yerawada jail, Pune; the same place where he was hanged.
No photographic evidence has been released by the respective government confirming their burial. America decided against making public the photographs of Osama's dead body, as it was considered to be 'bloody' and 'gory'.

Post death conspiracy theories
The death of both the terrorists is plagued with conspiracy theories. Some are suggesting that Kasab was killed by dengue and not by hanging as claimed by government of India.
People got to read similar stories Similar sort of theories were proposed after the killing of Osama bin Laden. Some claimed that Osama is still alive and is under protective US custody.
Though not premeditative, but still these theories further cements the weird similarities between the two people who chose the path of death and destruction.
