Qasab's hanging homage to my husband, says Vijay Salaskar's wife

"Though the execution was delayed, Qasab was finally hanged. With this hanging, homage has been paid to my husband. But the real homage will be the conviction of other accused shielded in Pakistan," Smita said.

Thanking President Pranab Mukherjee for rejecting the mercy plea of the Pakistani terrorist, Smita said, "Late Shiv Sena supremo Bal Thackeray had also demanded Qasab's hanging. His wish and our wish have been finally fulfilled."

"The entire family is happy to hear the news that Qasab was hanged, ahead of fourth anniversary of the attack," Smita said.

The hanging would surely send a message across the globe that India would not tolerate any terror attack, Smita said, adding, "I hope death sentence of Parliament House attack convict Afzal Guru would also be executed soon."

Police Inspector Salaskar was among the first causalities along with ATS chief Hemant Karkare and Additional Commissioner of Police Ashok Kamte during the November 2008 attacks.u00a0
