Father of the 11-year-old girl disabled by the bullets of Pakistani gunman Ajmal Kasab is still an angry man.
On the fateful night of November 26, Natwarlal Rotawan was waiting at the Chattrapati Shivaji Terminus (CST) with his daughter Devika and son Akash for a train when two terrorists opened fire at the station.
Natwarlal, who runs a dry fruit shop at Kalbadevi in South Mumbai says Kasab must be hanged in full view of public. "He has killed innocent people and deserves no mercy. The court must give him death penalty," a visibly annoyed Natwarlal said.
"That blood thirsty Kasab ruined my daughter's life. Now who will marry her. Her future is dark," an emotional Natwarlal said. In June last year, Devika and Natwarlal identified Kasab in court as one of the two gunmen who had opened fire at her and other passengers at CST. Though the little girl is in deep pain and is too young to understand terrorism says she wants to eradicate terrorism and would do it by joining police force.
"I don't want other children to face what I had to go through. I do not want people to become a victim of terror. I will join police force and remove terrorism and hatred. I want peace everywhere," Devika said.
I will soon join an English medium school, study hard so that I can join police force, she said.
