Mumbai: Family members of the slain policemen, who laid down their lives fighting terrorists on the November 26 last, said the gunman Mohammed Ajmal Amir Kasab should be hanged without any delay.

"It (Kasab's case) should be treated as a special case and on a priority basis Kasab should be hanged as he killed hundreds of people including policemen. When we have all the evidence, then why to delay the conviction?" asked Smita Salaskar, widow of Vijay Salaskar, who was gunned down near Cama hospital during the terror attacks.

Vinita Kamte, the widow of Additional Commissioner of Police Ashok Kamte, who was also killed near Cama hospital, said, "Kasab should be convicted at the earliest and India should set an example as to how serious it is when it comes to deal with terrorism."

"We should not give him Afzal Guru's treatment. Despite court's verdict, Afzal Guru, who had attacked the Parliament, has not been hanged yet which is very unfortunate," Kamte said.

Kasab and his associate Abu Ismail killed several policemen including Hemant Karkare, Vijay Salaskar, Ashok Kamte and Tukaram Ombale.
