Mumbai : After receiving appreciation from a special court which convicted gunmen Ajmal Kasab in the 26/11 terror attack case, 11-year-old Devika Rotawan, who was disabled by the bullets fired by Amir Ajmal Kasab, said he must get death penalty and deserves no mercy.

Devika, who was disabled by the bullets of Kasab, told PTI "I am very much happy to know that Kasab is proven guilty. I am eagerly waiting to know about the sentencing."

While pronouncing the verdict, Judge Tahaliyani said evidence given by the girl has been appreciated and she has shown a lot of courage.

In June last year, the little girl, who is now on crutches and her father maimed in 26/11 terror attack, identified Kasab in the court as one of the two gunmen who had opened fire at her and other passengers at CST.

Devika, who was constantly following news on TV channels today, said "Kasab has killed innocent people and deserves no mercy. The court must give him death penalty."

'I had no fear seeing Kasab on the day when I identified him in the court. I was there to speak the truth. That blood thirsty Kasab had killed so many innocent people at CST. Everything happened in front of me," Devika said. PTI
