Kasab trial raised prestige of Indian judiciary: Chidambaram
New Delhi: Home Minister P Chidambaram on Monday said the trial of Pakistani terrorist Ajmal Amir Kasab had raised the prestige of the Indian judiciary and welcomed the Bombay High Court judgment upholding his death sentence.
"This is a tribute to our legal system. We should allow our legal system to deal with the case in the manner every other case is dealt with. The manner in which we dealt with the case has raised the prestige of the Indian legal system," said Chidambaram, who had also complimented the prosecution on the judgment.
The court on Monday upheld the death sentence awarded to Kasab by a lower court for the killings during the 26/11 terrorist strike.
Chidambaram, however, expressed frustration at the pace of the prosecution of 26/11 plotters in Pakistan. "Between the high court and trial court in Pakistan, I am afraid there has been no movement at all," said the minister.
