Law Minister M Veerappa Moily on Thursday  said the verdict in the 26/11 case was a message to Pakistan that it cannot meddle in the country's affairs and to terrorists that they will face the same fate as Ajmal Kasab.

He asserted that Kasab deserved the most severe punishment for his acts. "He deserves more than that.

If something more can be done it would be welcome," he told reporters when asked about the special court verdict awarding death sentence to Pakistani terrorist Ajmal Amir Kasab.

Moily said the awarding of death sentence to Kasab was also a message to Pakistan that it cannot meddle with the lives and properties of people in India.

"Pakistan cannot meddle with the lives and properties of (our people) and if any terrorist is encouraged by them, he will meet the same fate as Kasab," he said here.

"The verdict sends a message to all terrorists -- you land in India and you will meet the same fate," he said adding that justice had been done to the nation. PTI
