Mumbai: Ujjwal Nikam, the Special Public Prosecutor in the trial of Mohammad Ajmal Amir Kasab, on Wednesday said he was “very happy” on hearing the news of execution of the 26/11 Mumbai attacks terrorist.
“I am very happy,” Nikam said. "It is victory for the country. By hanging Kasab, we have paid homage to all those policemen and innocent persons who lost their lives."
“I am happy for two reasons. One, finally some justice has been done to the victims of the Mumbai attacks. Second, we have given a strong message to terrorists,” he added.
"By Kasab's conviction and death penalty, we have proved how the entire conspiracy was hatched in Pakistan. We have set an example that India will not tolerate such attacks and the accused will be brought to justice," Nikam said.
Nikam appeared for the prosecution in the sessions court and High Court and assisted senior counsel Gopal Subramanium in the apex court.
