Centre shares 'sense of outrage'

NEW DELHI, MARCH 17. The Government said today that it shared the sense of outrage among the relatives and friends of those who lost their lives in the Kanishka bombing following Wednesday's judgment delivered by a Canadian court.

"We have noted the judgment delivered on March 16 by the British Columbia Supreme Court regarding the Air India Kanishka bombing case," the External Affairs Ministry said.

"The Kanishka bombing has been the most heinous terrorist attack in civil aviation history. We share the sense of outrage among the relatives and friends of those who lost their lives in that attack that after almost two decades, the culprits have not been brought to account."

Terrorism is recognised today as an action for which there can be no justification under any circumstances, the Ministry said.

"It cannot have a rationale or a context and the vast majority of nations and people reject it outrightly." "At this difficult moment, we can only share the hopes of all those affected by this tragedy that one day, justice may yet be done," it added.
