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 India’s affairs and to terrorists that they would face the same fate as Mohammad Ajmal Amir Kasab.

“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.

Mr. Moily 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,” .
