Ahead of the judgment, the kith and kin of the victims as well as the survivors of the ghastly terror strike are expecting the court to send the terrorist to the gallows.
He should not only be hanged to death, but he should be hanged in public for all of the country to see, the families of the victims say.
“Those terrorists killed my sister"s husband. The sole surviving terrorist should not be spared. He should be hanged in public," 60-year-old Mohammed Hanif Peer Mohammed told a news agency.
71-year-old survivor of the attack in Taj Mahal Palace and Tower Hotel, Indru Mansukhani said, “He is one of those responsible for killing so many people. There is no need to take pity on him. He is a murderer."
While Kavita Karkare, widow of slain Anti-Terrorism Squad chief Hemant Karkare, said she will speak only after hearing the verdict, Ragini S Sharma, the widow of slain railway officer Sushilkumar Sharma, said, “Kasab should be sentenced to most rigorous punishment. Kasab and all others should realise that their act of terrorism has taken away beloved members of our family. He should be hanged till death in public."
The 60-hour Mumbai terror strike left 166 people dead and over 300 injured. Kasab, who was the only terrorist out of the 10 perpetrators, faces 86 charges including murder and waging war against India.
