Former President APJ Abdul Kalam on Sunday said the country needs to enact a law which would provide stringent punishment to the culprits and also favoured introduction of citizen's identity card.

"I have said we need to enact a law which would provide stringent punishments and ensure justice," Kalam said while expressing his views on serial blasts in the national capital on Saturday evening.

He also said national citizen identity cards should be issued since "it is very important."

Kalam said that there is a need to create awareness among the general public so that such incidents could be prevented in the future.

"Create a sense of awareness among people to work together in identifying these incidents" he said.
