Chandigarh, November 21, 2012: Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee today welcomed the hanging of the 26/11 Mumbai terror attack convict Ajmal Kasab, saying justice had finally been done in the case.
The party maintained that his execution has conveyed the right message that India cannot and will not tolerate any act of terror even if it takes some time to follow the process of law.
Reacting to the execution, the Punjab Congress general secretary attached to the PCC President, Arvind Khanna said, every law abiding citizen of the country feels relieved over the justice done in the case.
Saluting the legal and judicial system of the country, Khanna pointed out, despite the live video footing of Kasab’s acts of terror and killing people, due process of law was followed right from the trial court up to the President of India to ensure that he was allowed to exercise all legal options for his defence.
The Congress general secretary while hailing the execution said, it was a long awaited decision since people across the country were feeling outraged over the audacity of the attackers.
