Survivors, kin hail verdict

By The Assam Tribune

MUMBAI, May 6 � Their wounds may never heal but survivors and relatives of victims of the November 2008 terror attacks today voiced satisfaction that Pakistani gunman Ajmal Amir Kasab has been handed down the maximum punishment under law and hoped that the execution will not be delayed, reports PTI.

�I am feeling good (after he verdict). But this cannot heal the wounds.... The decision has reinforced the faith in the judicial process of the country... The pain will always be there,� said Ragini Sharma, widow of a chief Ticket Collector at the CST who was killed on the fateful night by Pakistani terrorists, after Kasab was sentenced to death by a special court.

Vaishali, daughter of assistant police sub-inspector Tukaram Ombale, who died while trying to capture Kasab, said her father�s sacrifice had paid off but demanded that his execution should not be delayed as in the case Afzal Guru, who was sentenced to death in 2001 Parliament attack case.

�I am very happy today. He (Kasab) deserves it. Finally my father�s sacrifice has paid off...,� Vaishali told PTI.

Since the government has given top priority to completing court proceedings to convict Kasab, she said it should also try to execute the death penalty to the terrorist at the earliest.
