Vinita, widow of late police officer Ashok Kamte, who died fighting terrorists during the 26/11 attack, on Wednesday expressed satisfaction over the hanging of Pakistani gunman Kasab saying though belated, the government had done justice to the families of the martyrs.


"Though it took a long time, justice has been done to us. The authorities maintained extreme secrecy to carry out the execution and we are satisfied," she said reacting to the news of Kasab's hanging at Yerwada jail in Pune.

Vandana Chavan, NCP leader and relative of Kamte, said the action which gave justice to families of the victims, also demonstrated the country's commitment to the process of law.

On November 26, 2008, additional police commissioner Kamte, ATS chief Hemant Karkare and 'encounter specialist' Vijay Salaskar died in action at the Cama hospital fighting Kasab and his accomplice Ismail Khan during the terror strikes, which left 166 people dead.
