Fire works, road shows in Bangalore

Bangalore, Nov 21, 2012, DHNS: 0:58 IST
Bursting of crackers, distribution of sweets and road shows marked the day for Bangaloreans, following the execution of Ajmal Kasab on Wednesday.

Individuals, residents’ welfare organisations and student outfits were out on the streets, as the news of Kasab’s execution emerged.

Members of Akhila Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishat (ABVP) gathered at the Mysore Bank Circle around 10.30 am and distributed sweets to passersby.

“We welcome the action taken by the Central government. Though it has come after a long delay, we are happy that it happened finally.

“We demand that the government act speedily to hang Mohammad Afzal Guru, the terrorist convicted of the December 2001 attack on Parliament,” said Raghu Poojar, secretary of the Bangalore City unit of the ABVP.

Babu Kumar M, a social worker from Indiranagar, mobilised a crowd of 500 residents and took out a bike rally.

“We went through Indiranagar 80 feet road, Lakshmipura and Murphy Town, raising slogans to hail the Central government’s decision to hang Kasab. Many passersby and shopowners along the route expressed happiness over justice prevailing at last,” he said.

Dhruva R, a resident of Koramangala, said even though it was true that nobody could bring real justice to the families of the 166 people killed in the 26/11 attack in Mumbai, Kasab’s execution has sent a strong message to those who believe in such acts.

“At least, they have come to know by now that not everybody can get away easily, after committing such heinous crimes,” he said.

JD(S) leader M C Nanaiah said the Central government, hereafter, should ensure speedy investigations and trials against criminals like Kasab.

“It’s unfortunate that many mercy pleas of criminals awarded death sentence are pending before the President. Such delay in punishing criminals will give scope for more criminal activities. Laws should be amended suitably in this regard,” he said.
