Pune: Vinita, widow of late police officer Ashok Kamte, who died fighting terrorists during the 26/11 attack, today expressed satisfaction over the hanging of Pakistani gunman Kasab saying though belated, the government had done justice to the families of the martyrs.
"Though it took a long time, justice has been done to us. The authorities maintained extreme secrecy to carry out the execution and we are satisfied," she said reacting to the news of Kasab`s hanging at Yerwada jail here.
Vandana Chavan, NCP leader and relative of Kamte, said the action which gave justice to families of the victims, also demonstrated the country`s commitment to the process of law.
On November 26, 2008, Additional Police Commissioner Kamte, ATS chief Hemant Karkare and `encounter specialist` Vijay Salaskar died in action at the Cama hospital fighting Kasab and his accomplice Ismail Khan during the terror strikes, which left 166 people dead.
