Delhi : Union Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde says Pakistan was informed about the execution of Ajmal Kasab but so far no one has claimed the body of Kasab.
Shinde said that Indian mission in Islamabad has informed Pakistan Government about Kasab’s hanging through a letter.
However, after Pakistan refused to take the letter, it was then sent through fax.
Shinde said so far no one has claimed the body of Kasab and if Pakistan claims it, India would give it to the neighbouring country.
The Home Minister said there should not be any problem if Kasab is buried in India.
“I do not think there will be any trouble (if Kasab is buried in India) because India has suffered too much and everyone…. and this country has seen the tragedy. 166 people were killed after there days fight against humanity,” he said.
Khurshid said India did not get any request from Pakistan for handing over the body of Kasab.
Khurshid hope that rule of law will prevail in Pakistan.
“Frankly speaking, we have allowed rule of law to prevail (in the case of Ajmal Kasab). Similarly we hope rule of law will be followed in Pakistan. There is not vast difference between the criminal procedures in India and Pakistan,” External Affairs Minister Salman Khurshid told reporters in New Delhi.
