Every terrorist should meet logical end like Kasab's: Rehman Malik
Commenting on the execution of Ajmal Kasab, the sole surviving gunman behind the 2008 Mumbai attacks, Pakistan's Interior Minister Rehman Malik has said that every terrorist should be taken to his logical end.
Malik said that investigations were underway into the Mumbai attacks and he hoped that they would be completed till January next year, reports The News.
Malik said Pakistan would contact India if Kasab's family approaches the government for his body.
Pakistan-born Kasab was hanged at a jail in Pune's Yerwada jail at 7:30 am on Wednesday, after Indian President Pranab Mukherjee rejected his appeal for mercy.
Kasab was sentenced to death in May 2010 after he was found guilty of a string of charges, including waging war against India, murder and terrorist acts.
He appealed in the Supreme Court claiming he did not receive a fair trial, but his petition was struck down in August.
During the 2008 attacks, heavily armed gunmen stormed targets in Mumbai including luxury hotels, a Jewish centre, a hospital and a bustling train station.
